I'm Carma Baughman

After switching to the design world over 20 years ago, my career went in directions I never thought possible. 

Design changed my life. Being creative filled my soul. 

I am passionate about helping others also make the career journey into the design world.

I have trained 1000s of professionals the skills they need to advance in their career. My courses on Coursera reached over 135,000 learners.

I’ve been an employee, a contractor, a freelancer, and a business owner. I understand what’s needed to find your next job. 

I’m here to help you do just that!

Fun Facts About Me

I am a trainer at heart! I love helping others learn and have led numerous workshops and webinars, helping other professionals learn the skills they need to advance their career.

I love coffee shops but I do not drink coffee! I am a chai aficionado, and have introduced many friends and family members to the wonderful flavors of chai! Recently my nephew brought me chai back from India. The best!

I was 45 years old when I learned to snowboard! I skied prior to that and decided to take snowboard lessons with my twin nieces when they turned 14.

I love to travel. My husband and I spent 7 months in Mexico in 2018-2019. I have also traveled to China, Hong Kong, Europe, Africa, and South Korea. (I am from the US.) One of our next destinations will be New Zealand!

I love to bicycle! For a period of time, I commuted to work by bicycle, 14 miles one way! Last year my husband and I completed RAGBRAI - a 7-day 462-mile adventure across Iowa with 18,000 other riders!

I love the mountains! Having lived in Colorado for over 20 years, there is nothing quite like being surrounded by 14ers!
