After the birth of my first son, I returned to school to realize my dream of combining my creative and scientific interests once and for all – Landscape Design! While in school I was selected to work as an intern for the internationally recognized Elisabeth C. Miller Botanical Garden. While there, I learned about the care of rare and unusual plants in a carefully curated setting. It proved to be the perfect catalyst for my landscape design career.
I’m particularly interested in creating thoughtful outdoor spaces that reflect the homeowner’s lifestyle and interests – all while maintaining a healthy, ecologically-minded environment. It’s my goal with every design to create a space that finds that intersection between timeless and contemporary, modern and organic – the sweet spot.
I maintain memberships in the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, the Northwest Horticultural Society and am recognized as a Certified Professional Horticulturalist through the Washington State Nursery and Landscape Association.
I’ve enjoyed writing for Houzz as a bi-monthly contributor, Fine Gardening Magazine and the Northwest Horticultural Society’s quarterly publication – Garden Notes. My client’s gardens have appeared in The Seattle Times Sunday Pacific NW Magazine and 1889 Magazine. I was also lucky enough to design a series of container displays for Great Plant Picks at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show.
