Carmen wants to live in a world filled with unicorns, cook books drenched in marinara sauce and sticky-fingered toddlers.
As a landscape designer with more than 10 years experience she’s designed landscapes large and small ranging from residential projects to subdivisions, commercial projects and multi-use developments. She holds a Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) in Landscape Architecture from the University of Idaho as well as a Masters of Applied Science in Bioregional Planning and Community Design from the University of Idaho. One of her residential projects was recently featured on the cover of Treasure Magazine.
When she’s not designing awesome landscapes you can find her sipping Mint Juleps aboard her sturdy river vessel, training her pack of Blue Tick Coon Hounds, making fun of cat-people, “reading,” perfecting the fine art of creating jackalope taxidermy mounts, whipping up delectable Italian meals or answering the question “why” for the eleventy-billionth time.
While studying at the University of Idaho Carmen served as Vice President of the student chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, was a founding member of the Friday Afternoon Club (FAC) and established the first-annual International Jane’s Walk in Moscow, Idaho.
Carmen is a Boise native, attended Bishop Kelly High School, the University of Idaho and is happy living, working and raising her family on Boise’s west side.
