About me

Occupation Garden Consultant and Coach

Introduction I am a Garden Consultant and Coach in the Chicagoland area. I have also worked at garden centers, The Chicago Botanic Garden, and as a private gardener. I have been gardening for 16 years in the city. Outside, inside, in the ground, and in containers.

I spent five years as the Program Chair for my neighborhood garden club. I create and maintain gardens for our condo, both ornamental and edible. I love my family, friends, gardening, nature, travel, shih tzus, and blues.
Interests Gardening indoors and out, botanic gardens and nature centers, travel, nature walks, photography, shih tzus, dog rescue, music, art, architecture, homemade herbal salves and soaps.
