About me

Occupation Garden Coach
Location Illinois
Introduction Growing up in a farming, gardening family, I was bitten by the bug early and have been gardening since I was a little girl. Thanks to an 18-year stint in corporate America, I've learned a lot about business management. In 2007, I decided to combine my passion for plants and gardening with my business and entrepreneurial background to grow a garden consulting, coaching, and maintenance business of my own. I love what I do even more than I imagined, and still find time for my own ornamental and kitchen gardens, volunteering as a University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener, and sharing my gardening passion through my blog.
Interests gardening, reading, nature, spirituality, family, frugal, organic, and environmentally-sustainable living.
