She has won numerous awards for her orchid plants and show theme displays. In addition to her professional achievements, Carmen is also active in her community supporting various charitable organizations.
In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, fishing and spending time with her five grandchildren and tending to her private collection of more than 2,000 orchid plants, including several bearing her name.
