bird-obsessed, bee-loving, butterfly stalking, dedicated environmentalist, mother and grandmother.

my bachelor's degree in art/photography is from syracuse university.

initially a photographer, i worked as a photo retoucher when my daughters were young so i could be with them, work from home, and garden - lucky me!

my later experiences included working in nurseries and landscaping companies, doing it all - design, installation, pruning, maintenance - you name it! next came five years working exclusively with tree companies and now it's time to devote myself to my true passion - helping people improve their habitat at home by planting native plants.

as a board member of NYS Urban Forestry Council, the town of Henrietta sustainability committee and conservation board, as well as color Henrietta green, i help my community become environmentally aware

and...i also provide tree inspections and dabble in floral design - weddings and special events. life is full!
