I'm personal gardener with a lifetime of experience. I grew up on homestead without electricity. We had 10-acre Christmas tree farm. We grew shiitake mushrooms, raised goats, and grew most of our food. Later, I helped my father open a plant nursery that specialized in trees, shrubs, and vines.
I think people may hear "gardening" and possibly think about strictly a vegetable garden, which I am proficient with, but not limited to. I specialize in landscaping maintenance and love the challenge that comes with pruning a plant that has been overlooked for too long. My clients range from having perfectly manicured gardens (lawn and landscaping) to folks who have overgrown bushes that haven't been touched in years. I welcome all!
In Columbus, I worked for the Red Cross doing disaster relief. I am a disaster instructor and have worked multiple disaster shelters. I am passionate about prepardness.
MARKETING & COMMUNITY OUTREACH
After that, I worked in marketing for a group that helps people with disabilities and barriers to gain employment. I helped with community outreach, social media, and building community partnerships.
I am a former chef, with over 10 years of experience in the restaurant industry. I also worked at a fresh press juice shop and juice in bulk at home. I've lost and maintained keeping off over 40 lbs due to a healthier lifestyle and I owe a lot to juicing. When I juice or make smoothies, I select ingredients with purpose. I choose items that will compliment each other in both flavor and medicinal benefits to the body. I would love to share my recipes and tips with you.
