Carmen Ritz

Board Member

As a State Farm agent my passion is to help my clients manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected, and realize their dreams, all while being backed by the number one insurance company in the United States. As a business owner I have been consistently recognized for outstanding achievement among my peers & qualifying for Ambassador Travel every year, as well as Senior Vice Presidents Club and Chairman's Circle.

I was honored to have been awarded Athena Powerlink Candidate in 2017, and I am proud to continue to serve my community as a part of the organization. I have developed a passion for Athena and its commitment to helping women in business, knowing first-hand how it has helped me grow both professionally and personally.

My formal education includes a Bachelor of Arts in History from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. A native Tennessean, I consider myself extremely lucky to have found my way to Raleigh almost 20 years ago.
