Carvana Cloud is a native Houstonian. She was raised in Acres Homes and understands the plight of our LEADers. Carvana graduated from The Kinkaid School, then continued her passions for law and the Spanish language at De Pauw University in Indiana. She earned her juris doctorate from South Texas College of Law and was reared to serve others. Carvana’s grandmother was a school principal, her mother an educator, and all three generations public servants.

Currently, Carvana leads the Special Victims Bureau of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. As Bureau Chief, she is responsible for the prosecution of all interpersonal violence cases (domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking) filed in Houston, Harris County.

Carvana formerly served as an Assistant District Attorney and Division Chief of the Family Criminal Law Division of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. She managed a multi-disciplinary team of prosecutors, criminal investigators, and social workers committed to seeking justice for victims of domestic violence. In December of 2017, she established the Harris County Strangulation Taskforce to develop a county wide protocol for the investigation and prosecution of strangulation cases. Carvana’s journey has prepared her to serve and advocate for the disenfranchised.

In addition to serving the community, Carvana loves quality time with her family. You can find the Clouds at church, Girl Scout meetings, soccer games, traveling, and eating good food.
