Carmen Wierenga


Paralegal Carmen Wierenga is a bicyclist from Minneapolis, Minnesota. She believes that streets should be safe and accessible for everyone. She was drawn to Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers because of our focus on traffic-related injuries – more specifically bike accident cases. Carmen is a member of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, and she loves being part of the San Francisco Bay Area cycling community. When accidents happen, she wants to help people recover from their injuries (physically, emotionally, and financially) with as little stress as possible.

Carmen received a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science, Policy and Management in 2011 from the University of Minnesota. After graduating, she focused on policy and city planning and volunteered with transportation advocacy organizations in the Twin Cities.

Carmen relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2013, and she received a Paralegal Studies Certificate from San Francisco State University in 2016. She found that through the law, she could change people’s lives for the better. Carmen is now on track to complete her JD at Golden Gate University School of Law in May 2021. When she’s not helping our clients navigate the personal injury process, Carmen draws, travels, and trains in aerial silks.”
