Carmen Fraser Youngsteadt is the daughter of two immigrant parents – a mother from Bolivia, and a father from Scotland. Her culturally diverse background and ability to understand and adapt has formed who she is and made her the strong relationship-builder she is today.
Carmen is a vibrant, bilingual Marketing and Communications strategist who seeks to understand the “why” behind her clients and their businesses. She uses that knowledge and investigates company cultures to craft messaging with purpose, and form strategies that align with her clients’ core values and enhance their bottom lines.
Though Carmen graduated from Texas A&M University with a BBA in Accounting and a Master of Science in Taxation, she successfully transitioned her career from “The Big 4” to agency life, thanks to the strong connections she established. Carmen’s strength lies in building and maintaining trusted relationships, which she has used to form the large network that has opened many doors to her personally and professionally.
Carmen excels when in the joyful service of others. It is thus that she serves on the Boards of two organizations with similar missions of advancing Hispanic professionals: the Texas A&M Hispanic Network and Latina Professionals. She is able to use her experience and passion for helping others, along with her Leadership Coach certification, to create the structure and support systems needed to lift up the next generation of young professionals through mentorship, guidance and networking.
Apart from career successes, she is most proud of being a mother of 3 intelligent and inquisitive children who keep her on her toes, and feed her thirst for knowledge. To balance out the demands of work and home, she practices yoga, and continues to educate herself and her family through travel.
