Carmen Osbahr did not originally plan to become a puppeteer. Interested more in the television medium, puppetry came into her life when she began working on several television shows in Mexico City for Televisa which included puppets. In 1985, she attended a Muppeteer Workshop that scouted out young talent for Sesame Street's Mexican co-production, Plaza Sésamo. Kermit Love asked Osbahr to not only work on Plaza Sésamo, but to train other puppeteers at the workshop.

From there, Osbahr got in touch with Jim Henson, and she began visiting the set of Sesame Street in the mid-eighties. Osbahr became an official Muppeteer in 1989. Her most well known character, Rosita, made her first appearance on Sesame Street in Season 23.

Osbahr has since performed on a variety of Muppet projects, including Bear in the Big Blue House and Dog City. She also performed Kiki in the TV series The Puzzle Place.

Osbahr also appears as Lily the Water Sprite in the full half-hour version of Johnny and the Sprites, which premiered in January 2007.
