Research and Resource


The work of Research and Resource began in the head of the founder, Carmen Cauthen, in 1998, when she typed a manuscript for a friend of her family.  When she and her client read the edited version, the voice of the author had been completely changed.  She vowed not to let that happen again.

Officially, Carmen wrote the Journal for the North Carolina House of Representatives for over 19 years.  This included writing, editing, proofreading, and indexing the book.  She also researched for the public as well as for others.  Her eye for detail and consistency is unmatched.

Community engagement comes naturally to her as she learned those lessons as the child of a politically active teacher and a community pharmacist.  Her specialty is creating a trusting atmosphere for people to share needs and concerns in a powerful way.
