A love of flowers was the beginning. Then it turned into a passion (some would say an obsession), and after seeing the results my efforts brought forth in my own yard I decided to begin a career in the green industry. After completing a program for Environmental horticulture and becoming a Georgia Certified Plant Professional, I joined the horticulture team at Barnsley Gardens Resort, designed for a garden center in north Georgia and most recently worked for a landscaping company in West Michigan. I served on the board for West Michigan Nursery and Landscape Association for three years and continue to be on the committee for March Garden Day.
I offer on-site consultations for the aspiring gardener– help with design, offering options and promoting sustainable gardening methods.
