Meet Carmen!

I’m so excited to partner with professionals who are determined to identify their highest potential in leadership and professional relationships, regardless of industry. As a leader in the consulting, training and talent development industries for the past 16+ years, and a corporate professional for 25+ years overall, I have come to realize that leadership is not position; but power. Leadership is the impact power to influence those around you, regardless of your placement in the organization. I am uniquely qualified to guide professionals in identifying their professional power and using it to positively influence effective outcomes.

As the owner and Chief Consultant of Accentuate Leadership & Consulting, LLC, I apply my theoretical knowledge, gained with the completion of my Masters degree in Education and professional certification in Human Resources, coupled with the practical experience developed by advising corporate professionals to identify solutions that improve relationships and impact the effectiveness, efficiency and ultimately a business’ bottom line.

To refuel my energy, I find balance in spending quality time with my family, friends, community-focused events and my church. I can easily get lost in the challenge of a good mystery novel or crime-thriller movie and I enjoy running half marathons. To date, I have completed more than 15 competitive races in various cities in the U.S. and Jamaica. It remains to be seen if a full marathon will make it to my list of accomplishments.

Let Carmen accentuate your leadership efforts!
