Although I have many hobbies and a variety of work and educational experiences, I’ve been involved with plants for most of my life. I grew my first garden when I was 10 years old and when I was a teenager I worked with my dad maintaining indoor tropical plants. Over the years I worked seasonally for various landscape companies and as a seasonal naturalist for state parks until I earned my Master Gardener certificate in 2010. The UConn Master Gardener program really helped me to acquire a wealth horticultural knowledge and I am very grateful for that experience. It was a springboard to starting my own independently owned business in which I offered garden maintenance and small scale design services. After working alone for several years I decided I wanted to work alongside other professionals and began working as a horticulturalist for a daylily breeder and seller. It was a fantastic learning experience on many levels, but eventually, I wanted to transition to a broader palette of plants beyond just daylilies. After signing up for a Naugatuck Valley Woody Ornamental course in the fall of 2019 I was serendipitously hired by Prides Corner to work in their fast-paced sales department. I am so happy to be a part of this wonderful team of people and look forward to helping our customers get just the right plants for their projects.
