Earlier in her career, she was a morning radio personality on Toronto's Mix 99.9 from 1992 to 1994, co-hosting with Tom Rivers along with Larry Fedoruk. Rivers left in 1993 and Fedoruk and Collins continued as a duo. She returned from 2001 to 2003. For the latter stint, following a short period co-hosting with Steve Anthony who then moved to afternoon drive time, Collins became the first woman in Canada to be billed as the sole regular host of a morning radio show on a commercial station in a major media market, as opposed to co-hosting with one or more men.

During 2001 she appeared in the role of Rusty Sinclair on Paradise Falls, a soap opera on Showcase Television.

In 2006 Carla teamed up with producer Frank Sicoli for an unscripted television sitcom titled The Visionary Position. This series (released on DVD) is described as Curb Your Enthusiasm meets Sex and the City meets Bewitched. Collins says, "I prefer to think of it as The Ghost Whisperer on crack."

In 2006, she workshopped a well-received one-woman show called The Visionary Position in Toronto and Los Angeles.

She is also a freelance writer for Inside Entertainment.

Collins' reality show Carlawood debuted on TVtropolis in April 2009. The show follows her attempt to find A-list work after her move to Hollywood, and satirizes reality shows.
