Although Bickmore moved with her family at a young age, she was born in Adelaide, South Australia, in 1980. Bickmore graduated from Curtin University of Technology in 2000 after studying journalism there while attending the Anglican girls' school Perth College. To pursue a career in media, she relocated to Melbourne, Victoria, in 2001.
Bickmore began her career as a newsreader on Perth's 92.9FM as a last-minute replacement for a sick coworker. Brian Bickmore, her father, was a radio announcer at the time and eventually held executive positions within the Austereo network. She was thereafter hired by the station as a regular newsreader.
Bickmore started reading the afternoon news for Melbourne radio station Nova 100 in 2001, and she and Andy Ross joined the show as co-hosts in 2002.
Bickmore competed in the Australian Commercial Radio Awards' Best News Presenter category in 2005.
On behalf of Nova 100, Bickmore, Rebecca Leahy, and Michael Colling accepted the prize for Best Community Service Project - Metro.
Bickmore and Charlie Pickering appeared on the three-week-long, nationally broadcast radio program The Breakfast Project in October 2012. The show won over both reviewers and viewers, and it gave rise to rumors that Bickmore and Pickering would start appearing regularly on Nova 100 Melbourne.
Bickmore made a final appearance at Nova 100 in November 2013 to read the news and bid farewell to the station's longtime Hughesy and Kate.
Bickmore and Tommy Little were confirmed as the hosts of Carrie & Tommy on the Hit Network beginning at 3pm by Southern Cross Austereo in January 2017.
