Carmen graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Lethbridge in 2007 and she obtained a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta in 2009. She began her teaching career at Vera M. Welsh Elementary School in Lac La Biche. In 2016, Carmen made the move to Light of Christ Catholic School when it first opened. She took on the role of Classroom Support Teacher (CST), and also taught grade 1 and French as a Second Language (FSL) to students in grade 4 to 8.

Outside of school, one thing that Carmen is particularly passionate about is the outdoors; she enjoys camping, fishing, quadding and snowmobiling.
Romans 8:28 is an example of scripture that resonates with Carmen. “We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.”
