Carlina Carter

​​​​​​​Carlina Carter, our Department Administrator, has been named to the Indispensable Role of Blacks at Johns Hopkins University project. The digital exhibit recognizes Black students, faculty, and staff who have contributed to the university’s history and who have brought honor to Johns Hopkins through their achievements. Her induction will be held virtually on June 18.

Carlina joined the Department in 2007 as a budget analyst where she was responsible for submitting and monitoring the department’s payroll systems, preparing budges for grants, contracts, and subcontracts, reviewing budget justifications, and ensuring compliance with university and/or agency regulations and restrictions. Over the years, she has become an invaluable asset to the department and the school. She has held various roles including as senior research analyst and as financial manager, where she managed over $12 million in grant and contract revenue and another $615 thousand in gifts and other non-sponsored revenue. Carlina was promoted in 2017 to her current role as Department Administrator. She supervises and manages the department’s academic and financial administrative staff, and works with the chair and faculty on strategic planning across financing, research, education, human resources, marketing, and many other department domains. Before coming to DMH, Carlina worked in administrative roles both in the Department of General Internal Medicine in the School of Medicine and the Center for American Indian Health at the Bloomberg School.

Carlina exemplifies the contributions staff make to the success of our department, school, and university. She is mission-driven, knowledgeable, and steps up to every challenge! She is resourceful in finding solutions to problems, and is the definition of a team player. Importantly, she is also a joy to work with. She genuinely cares for and respects all of our DMH people and promotes our “family” atmosphere. She is also an exceptional representative of the department, serving as a liaison between DMH and international NGOs, other external organizations, and other departments within the School. In sum, Carlina’s dedication to our work and public mental health mission, as well as her attention to detail and efficient processes, has contributed greatly to our success, as well as to operations across the school.
