Carmen has been in the insurance industry for over 22 years and has been with this team for over 6 years now. The majority of her experience has been in the commercial lines servicing and marketing middle market businesses.
Her extensive knowledge, experience and strong relationships with the insurance markets that specialize in the commercial lines categories, allow her the ability to negotiate favorable coverage terms for her clients. She has great rapport with clients and company underwriters, and her vast experience and enthusiasm in this fast paced environment makes her a valuable asset to the team.
Over the years she has received her CISR designation (Certified insurance Service representative), CIC designation (Certified Insurance Counselor) and CRM designation (Certified Risk Manager). Currently, Carmen is undergoing the highest and perhaps the most prestigious insurance designation in the insurance industry, the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation. Earning the CPCU designation gives individuals a strong foundation in risk management of property and casualty exposures, providing them the tools they need to meet the challenges of a demanding global insurance marketplace. The course being several years long, Carmen expects to earn this designation by 2018.
Outside of the office, Carmen is very involved with her family and loves to spend time with her husband and their two teenage boys.
