Dr. Carla L. Wyatt, County Treasurer

Dr. Carla L. Wyatt, County Treasurer

Honorable Dr. Carla L. Wyatt received her bachelor’s degree in Science, Master of Science in Biology, and Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology right here in Houston from Texas Southern University. Her extensive professional biography began at the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality where she worked as an investigator in the air program for several years before being hired as the TreeScape Coordinator for The Park People, Trees for Houston, and Scenic Houston. 

After leaving her position at TreeScape, Dr. Wyatt was hired as a Professional Development Trainee and Projects Coordinator by the Harris County Public Infrastructure Department. Over the next 20 years, she established herself as a dedicated public servant in several capacities within Harris County including working in the Harris County Budget Office, Harris County Universal Services, Harris County Constable Precinct 3, and stepping up to run emergency communications during Hurricane Harvey. 

During that time, Dr. Wyatt cultivated her passion for community service by proudly serving numerous community-based organizations such as the Houston Art Foundation Board, Scenic Houston Board, Houston Spark Park School Park Program Board, and the Clean Houston Commission. A few of her non-professional affiliations are with the illustrious Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated and Texas Southern University Alumni Association. Recently, Dr. Wyatt made history by becoming our newest Harris County Treasurer, making her the first African American elected to the position. As Treasurer, she strives to use the many relationships she built during the span of her career to serve the people of Harris County with the professional and responsible accountability we all deserve.
