About Me

I sling flowers for a living and LOVE it…a professional petal pusher if you will.  For many years you would find me spending my days working at a beautiful Garden Center in Northern Virginia where I specialized in Annuals and Container Gardening.  I have since moved on to a wholesale grower in Southwestern Virginia, specializing in perennials, grasses and ground covers.   I love creating, digging in the dirt and helping my customers do the same.  After work you’ll find me in my garden at home planting, potting, harvesting……….the list goes on:-)  Come along and follow me and all of my gardening adventures!

And in case you couldn’t get enough about me…

I’m a native Northern Virginian who enjoys animals, hiking, and anything outdoors.  Mom to three beautiful cats and Aunt to three fantastic boys.  And yes, I’m a self admitted crazy cat lady…and plant lady!
Career:
After 15 years of experience in multiple departments at Merrifield Garden Center, the last 6 years with MGC as the buyer and manager of the Annuals Department.  I have a true passion for plants, especially Annuals, and this job only fostered my plant addiction!
Realtor with RE/MAX Gateway, specializing in the Northern Virginia market, I got my start in the real estate industry in 2005 with a local developer in the Washington DC Metropolitan area.  Homes and gardens go hand in hand and I can’t get enough!
Education:

2004: B.S.IN. Environmental Studies, George Mason University
2007: A.S. Paralegal Studies, Northern Virginia COmmunity College

  1. Sound like me! I run a garden center all day long (and love it!) then come home and work in my own garden. 🙂
    Lovely posts. I’ve been playing with new flower container designs too, only mine are deer resistant themed 😉
    Keep up the great work!
