My gardening career started in public gardens on the east coast. I have had the honor of working in some amazing places including the Scott Arboretum inPennsylvania, The Isabella Steward Gardener Museum in Boston, and Wave Hill in NYC.
My training at Longwood Gardens was extensive and has served me well over the years and opened up a variety of work including greenhouse production, small design projects, tree care, pruning, planting and more.
Since moving to Ohio in 1999, I have mostly worked in the private sector. From 2008-2012, I managed the Tremont Farmers' Market, which further increased my interest in local food production and sustainable and wholesome gardening practices.
I am currently the Perennial Gardener Maintenance Supervisor for KGK Gardening & Design Corp, a landscape design, build and maintenance company based in Hudson, OH.
