I am the Marketing and Supply Manager so I do research, ordering, and pricing for our Nursery & Greenhouse. I deal with most things marketing and advertising related including managing our Facebook page. I do lots of other miscellaneous stuff that comes with working for a small business. Variety is the spice of life!
Experience and Credentials
I love gardening and Googling! I started here when the nursery was young and we all had a lot to learn. I love solving problems and creating systems and spreadsheets to track inventory and keep us organized. I have an Interior Design degree which helps with the Decor side of the nursery. I have a business minor which helps with the marketing side of my job. Mostly, I just Google.
Best things about your job
I love working for a small business where your job is varied and no two days are alike. Each employee can really make a difference! I am grateful that I get to work around plants which is one of my passions. Danny is a great boss and a great human being and all things flow downward so he makes Wapsie Pines a great place to work.

Common problem faced by your customers
Finding a plant that’s maintenance free, ever blooming, deer and rabbit resistant, drought tolerant, shade and sun tolerant, and only gets as big as it says on the tag.
I love to garden and have learned it’s a process, not a destination. I am constantly moving plants around in my landscaping and am never completely satisfied. I like to sit on the deck and read and watch the birds. I quilt, go to flea markets, and love spending time with family and friends.
