I met Carmen in the most extraordinary way. After leaving a fundraiser, I shared a cab with her. “What a woman!” I thought to myself. So confident, so powerful, so straightforward. I thought this encounter to be my Karmic reward for having contributed goodwill to a noble cause that night. Since working with Carmen, professionally and personally, my life has expanded and so have all the marvelous possibilities. She is pure joie de vivre, a quality that we all deserve to possess and strive for. I don’t look back now, only forward.
