1981 graduate of Virginia Tech with a bachelor of science degree my major was biology.
I have been with New Garden since 1995. I started part-time as a cashier, moved to annuals, then perennials, trees and shrubs, and then finally the container garden division which I headed for several years before being asked to join the GET (Garden Enhancement) team. I have worked alongside crews learning pruning, planting and bed prep techniques which has allowed me to help my customers with those questions. I have mainly been associated with the retail division where I originally met many of my current customers.
Currently I am a member of the sales team for the GET department. My focus is on container gardens at the homes of many of our customers. I also work with customers on the design of small beds, foundation plantings and patio enhancements.
I enjoy meeting and getting to know my customers. I have several customers that I have been helping since I started in 1995.
Away from New Garden I enjoy spending time with my husband fly-fishing, gardening and traveling. We are both active in our Church where we lead several Bible studies. We have two sons. One lives on the west coast the other here in town. Our granddaughter Reagan gives us many hours of enjoyment.
