The 17-year-old, who debuted for the Matildas last year at 15 and played for them at the Rio Olympics at 16, says she will head to the United States or Europe once her first season with Canberra United is over.
"I'll definitely be playing over there somewhere," she told website PlayersVoice.
"It's just a matter of deciding on a club and I'll take some time to do that."
Carpenter, who has also played two seasons with the W-League's Western Sydney Wanderers, says her manager has already fielded offers from international clubs and she is currently leaning towards a US stint.
"I'll concentrate on the W-League and then I'll talk to my coach at the Matildas, Alen Stajcic, and my family before I settle on one," she said.
The young gun said she's keen to emulate the achievements of other Matildas who have played in the National Women's Soccer League in the US.
"I've seen girls like Caitlin Foord and Sam Kerr go to the US while they were still teenagers and be successful and I want to do the same," she said.
Other Matildas to have recently played in the NWSL include Hayley Raso, Ash Sykes, Larissa Crummer, Steph Catley and Alanna Kennedy.
