Born and raised in North Vancouver, Carmen loves her new home in the sunny Okanagan.

Carmen graduated from BCIT's Broadcast Journalism program in April 2012.

Before joining Castanet, she worked at 103.9 Juice FM, as well as enjoying a year long stint on Vancouver Island's airwaves with the teams at 89.7 Juice FM in Duncan and 99.7 2Day FM in Campbell River.

Carmen was the recipient of the Jack Webster Student Journalism Award - as well as being a finalist for a BCAB Award in 2013 for her reporting on the 2013 Haida Gwaii earthquake. Before BCIT, she obtained a bachelors' degree in Economics and Criminology.

Her goal when she moved here in the Spring of 2013 was to taste every wine around the valley, and while a huge effort has already been made, it is still a work in progress.

Outside of work, Carmen shares a home with her boyfriend Michael and their high energy rescue puppy Arya.
