TEAM: Board & Staff


Carmen Duncan is a social entrepreneur and the Chief Coach + Founder of Mission Accomplished Transition Services (Mission Accomplished). Carmen established the organization in 2012 with a vision to create a professional and personal development resource that recognizes the potential and power of aspiring young professionals in high school, college, trade school and students who do not desire to engage in traditional higher education but are self-directed learners who lead their own educational path. She joined the journey of social entrepreneurship with a clear agenda to motivate aspiring young professionals to: define their life’s purpose, take ownership of their life journey, gain a better understanding of their worth and power, discover the inherent valuable skills they will offer to the global workforce, identify and utilize resources to help them meet their goals and connect them to employment, pursue higher education and other meaningful resources that promote them as qualified, skilled candidates.

Through her leadership, Mission Accomplished is able to challenge the status quo and break barriers with and for aspiring young professionals. As the organization grows she is committed to ensuring the business model is sustainable and scalable.


The Mission Accomplished team helps keep our operation running smoothly. This passionate, energetic, dedicated team develops and executes our career education and coaching programs while motivating students to confidently launch into the global workforce.
