Carmen was born in Edmonton, Alberta and was a high school boarding student at Concordia University College where she graduated.
Carmen’s daughter was a boarding student at SMS, Class of 2017.
Why SMS? “Because our daughter chose it for herself. We toured numerous boarding schools, and she selected St. Margaret’s for its empowering all-girls philosophy, S.T.E.M. focus, and welcoming atmosphere. As a parent and educator I want to whole heartedly support that decision and contribute in any way I can to the SMS community.”
