At the Hort Life LLC, horticulture is a way of thinking, a way of life. It is difficult for me to spend a day on this earth without being amazed by plants, recognizing the incredible connection to life they provide through symbiotic relationships and their interwoven fibers. A cultivated space is an intricate blend of nature, history, sustainability, beauty, design and function, which shapes and influences our lives. My priority is partnering with you to create solutions and solve problems through best management practices and reliable resources.
I am a graduate of The University of Georgia Horticulture program where I studied with some of the most notable professors in the industry.

My resume includes retail garden center management, wholesale redistribution, landscape gardening, greenhouse operations, plant propagation, pest management, horticultural education and consulting . With nearly 25 years of experience in this industry, I am well informed, well connected and well suited to help guide you way through the proverbial horticulture jungle.
