Vrsansky, counsel in the Intellectual Property Section at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney's Pittsburgh office, was featured in the October 15, 2009, edition of INTA Bulletin — the voice of the International Trademark Association. Vrsanksy, a member of INTA, appeared in the newsletter's "Member Spotlight" column.

As a spotlighted member, a photo and write up on her life and career ran. As noted, "Carla Vrsansky has been practicing in the field of trademarks for over 15 years … she describes herself as a 'people person,' and this trait does in fact shine through many aspects of her career and her life."

The article went on to explain how Vrskansky, a chemist by trade, began her professional life working in an environmental laboratory and later enrolled in law school. Upon graduation, she joined Westinghouse Electric Corporation as an IP attorney, overseeing patents and trademarks.

"While she is a Registered Patent Attorney, Carla found that the more she worked on trademark matters, the more she enjoyed the subject matter, as well as the people in that field. She felt that she had found her calling and decided to focus her career in the direction of trademarks," stated the article.

Also noted in the article were the many positions Vrsansky has filled with INTA — including roles on the Programs Committee, the Meetings Board and the Membership Services Committee — as well as the relationships she has made through the organization and things she likes to do in her free time.
