Dr. Carolyn Vincent, president of Vincent Associates, LLC,  is an author,  trainer, guest speaker, certified executive & leadership coach, and an organizational development expert skilled at directing the development and implementation of human capital solutions.  She is a thought leader and trusted advisor who is skilled in propelling executive and workforce commitment to achieve transformational and organizational goals. Friends and colleagues know her as Dr. C.

Dr. Vincent came  from humble and simple beginnings. Born and raised in rural Arkansas,  she was one of 12 children; her father was a lumber mill worker, and her mother was a homemaker. Growing up money was often tight; and a result the children  sometimes had to wear hand me down clothes.  They  also had home gardens and food stamp supplements that helped to keep food on the table. While the family sometimes struggled financially, her  parents created a supportive and loving environment that instilled in their children the value of hard work, determination, and perseverance. Those humble beginnings provided the impetus for her to achieve success through furthering her education beyond high school.   The first in her family to go to college, achieve a  Bachelor of Science,  MBA, and Ed.D; education has been instrumental in shaping and enhancing her life.

In addition to education, Dr. Carolyn built strong relationships and knitted a wide network of personal friends and professional colleagues to help her become a successful educator and business professional.  She faced and conquered many of the same challenges and insecurities facing many people today.  She is a spiritual and compassionate person who began writing at a young age and found that it not only gave her a place to reflect on her thoughts and fears; it also enabled her to see a world of possibilities.   She  believes that her experiences and the lessons she learned—several of which are shared through her inspirational readings—had a profound impact on her life and can also encourage others.

Dr. Vincent earned an Ed.D. from The George Washington University, an executive MBA from Strayer University, and a B.S. degree in Business Management from Arkansas State University (ASU). She is also a certified coach through the International Coaching Federation where she provides individual and group coaching for anyone on a quest to improve their lives or just need a little support.

Dr. Carolyn and her husband Brady reside in Maryland.
