More than 25 years ago, I began educating people about why and how to recycle their bottles and cans to conserve natural resources. But I wanted to do more to preserve the natural world, so I went to law school to become an Environmental Attorney, ultimately working on climate change legislation. After several years, seeing little progress and feeling profoundly ineffective, I decided to re-evaluate how I was using my talents to make a difference in our world.
My Path to the Garden
I started gardening and drawing again. I rekindled my love affair with plants and art. I took horticulture and garden design classes. I discovered my untapped ability as an artist to “see” how to transform existing gardens into more beautiful and functional spaces.
I completed my horticulture studies, worked as a design apprentice for several years with well-established garden designers, and, finally opened my own practice.
Through my professional journey, I discovered a new sense of hope in the environment’s resiliency. I feel grateful to have found a way to continue my work conserving natural resources and helping the environment to heal – one garden at a time.
I’d be honored to share my knowledge, talents, and passion with you to help create a wonderful outdoor space that adds beauty and hope to the world.
