From the first time I met her, Carmen impressed me with her tenacity and go-getter spirit. She’s a high achiever who aims for excellence and, most important, is committed to learning and continual self-improvement. One of the best decisions I ever made is when I decided to hire her!

I have known Carmen for several years and more recently as an exceptional graduate student focused on Leadership & Management development. She is of impeccable character, highly authentic and courageously vulnerable about who she is and what she feels called to be and do. She communicates with compelling clarity, passion, care, creative content and effective impact and outcomes. She is growing her leadership competencies and chemistry at a rate that exceeds expectations of those observing and monitoring the progress. She is being promoted at a rate that exceeds her expectations. She has been involved in graduate leadership courses for the past six months and has excelled with a white-hot passion and learning hunger and parallel outcomes in her learning processes and delivery. She invariably becomes an exceptional learning group contributor and facilitator.

Respectfully and with high commendations,

Paul Magnus, Ph.D. – Distinguished Professor of Leadership and Management at Briercrest Seminary.

Carmen is a driven leader who effectively shares a balanced presentation of knowledge that reflects biblical insight and practical experience.

I have had the privilege to be with Carmen in a number of different facets in life: teacher to her children, participant in a Bible study she has lead, staff member of the board she directs, and members of the same church. And with every role, she is an inspiration! She is true to herself—a life-long learner and leader.

“Not just an academic brain; she’s walked the trenches of life.”

Carmen is an enthusiastic, passionate, articulate woman and I see the hand of God upon her life. She is a strong leader who continues to develop her giftings and calling, while being committed to wholeheartedly serving where God has called her. She is my peer in ministry and I am grateful to call her my friend.
