My passion has forever been rooted in the world of plants. I have worked the majority of my career life in the landscape and garden industry. Starting as a teenager as the landscape assistant at a prestigious club in Bellevue. My next horticulture industry experience was in the early 2000’s in shipping and receiving for an upscale Gig Harbor nursery. Over the years, I have been a self-employed owner of a landscape maintenance business for private estates. Taking this landscape knowledge, I branched out into landscape design in 2008. My most recent work was a landscape designer for a landscape company whom has been in business for 40+ years. I am very excited to be part of the team here at Outdoors By Design and look forward to helping make our client’s outdoor dreams a reality.
