Carmen was born in Palencia, the birthplace of Romanesque architecture and suckling lamb, and studied law at the University of Valladolid, studying her final degree at the University of Bologna, considered the oldest university in the world.

This experience enabled her to speak Italian fluently, to understand Italian regulations and to learn that pasta carbonara does not contain cream.

After her experience in Italy, she moved to Madrid, where she attended the master’s degree in Access to the Legal Profession and became more familiar with industrial property, becoming fascinated by how this intangible asset plays such an important role in the consolidation and industrial growth of companies.

After passing the national bar exam, she moved to London where she had the opportunity to live for two and a half years and study at Queen Mary University of London, one of the most prestigious law universities in the world. At this university she specialized in industrial property, which was, by far, a great learning experience both professionally and personally.

After her studies she decided to return to Spain in search of new opportunities and a better climate (not to mention the food), finding in BALDER what she was looking for, an international environment, formed by young people and full of opportunities.

In her spare time Carmen enjoys traveling, reading, cooking and yoga.
