“You have to color outside the lines once in awhile
if you want to make your life a masterpiece.” Albert Einstein

Are you leading the life you want to live?


Is your life no longer working for you?

One thing each of us can count on, is that throughout life, everyone of us will face times of change and transition. 

These times of uncertainty can be quite difficult and painful. Most of us do not embrace change easily. However, with the proper support and encouragement, difficult times can be a stimulus and opportunity for growth.  It is never too late to live the life you were meant to live!

If you are overwhelmed and stuck, let me support you. Lets work together to create a life you will be excited about waking up to each day.

Please Contact me with any questions.

Why LEAP! with Carmen?

The main reason you would want to work with me is that during my life, I have experienced most of the challenges you are facing today. I know first hand the frustration and pain your are feeling. I want to “pay it forward” by supporting you as I was supported though times of transition and change.

My Background

I have successfully been leaping from one improbable goal to the next. I have accomplished time and again what everyone told me was impossible.

While it has not always been easy, my creative approach to problem solving and goal setting enabled me to support myself working as an internationally recognized artist and teacher of painting and creativity while raising my three awesome children and furthering my own education. I left off my education as a junior in college and went back to get my bachelors at 40. Once I got back into school, I kept going to get an MFA in painting and several certifications.  I discovered that I love learning and am happy to report that my curiosity is insatiable!

As a life-long artist and certified life and executive coach, I am an expert in supporting individuals to re-discover their innate creativity and unique vision. I encourage each client to explore her inner voice in order to live her very best life. It is a source of great joy and fulfillment for me to be able to help each client design a flourishing life based on her unique experiences, talents and gifts.
