Carmen is one-third of The Morning Cruise, heard weekday mornings on The JOY FM. She is heard in Florida, Georgia & Alabama.

She is originally from Jacksonville, Alabama (Roll Tide!), but has made her home in the Tampa Bay area for over 20 years. Carmen is a true Southern girl at heart, and never strays too far from her Southern roots.

After graduating from the University of South Alabama, (literally the day after!), Carmen made her way south with her husband Pete to Tampa. She’s a true transplant of Florida now, and has raised her family within a stones throw of the Gulf.

Carmen and Pete have two daughters, Haley and Abbey.

She started CarCar&Co. with her daughters, and is looking forward to having “Off-Air Conversations” about faith, food, all things girlie, and any other fun favorites that may tickle her fancy.

Carmen loves women, and firmly believes in championing one another. Having spent her whole career using words, Carmen knows that words matter. They have the power to “life” or “death” someone. {Proverbs 18:21}. But kind words are like honey – sweet to the soul, and healthy for the body. {Proverbs 16:24}.
