My love of gardening began when my husband and I moved to our first home in 2002. I started out just like many an inspiring gardener with LOTS of dead plants and a steep learning curve. I muddled my way through until I sought the help of a garden consultant. From there, my confidence grew and I became passionate about creating a garden I loved.
Over the course of the next 13 years, I honed my skills as a Central Valley Gardener. I wrote for a local blog and began helping friends and neighbors reach their gardening goals.
In 2011, I started my first official job as part of the sales team of a local nursery. Learning about the plants/trees/shrubs that performed well in our growing zone gave me the experience I needed to start consulting professionally.
