Karla M. Wood went to law school later in life having learned from the school of hard knocks the damage a half-truth or outright lie can have on one's life. She graduated valedictorian from high school and received a 4-year Army ROTC scholarship. Karla graduated from The Johns Hopkins University with the honor of distinguished military graduate and a bachelor of arts in psychology. She also served her country as an officer in the US Army Reserves. She currently serves as General Counsel for the Haywood County Republican Party. Karla lives in Waynesville near her two sons and their families.
