Skills

From my unique background comes a skill set that is not easily found elsewhere.  From the beginning my focus was and remains plants. I have sought experiences that have exposed me to a variety of plant genres, growing environmentssectorstheories and techniques, and technical horticulture skills and knowledge.  From landscape design, I understand how to use plants, landscapes, and gardens to achieve goals. The skills used in landscape design, such as computer applications, drafting, vision planning with attention to detail, and system thinking are transferable to other projects and tasks. Lastly with a degree in environmental education, I am able to effectively engage with people and create programming that  utilizes the key features of plants and gardens. It is the cumulation of these three areas and my past work experiences that developed into strong management skills.
