Experience

I was introduced to the industry at a very young age when I began helping at my mother's flower store on Main Street in Clinton, NJ. Since the early 1990's I have been immersed in and passionate about landscaping and design. In 2004, prior to college I first worked full time at Rutgers Nursery as a cashier and yard helper for a little over a year.  Afterwards, I attended Hofstra University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology.

After graduating, I returned to Rutgers Nursery as a salesperson until I became a designer at the landscaping division in 2013. Here are a few of my notable achievements while at Rutgers Landscape: I led the way with the new division of Rutgers Pools. In 2014 I sold and managed the Eagle Award winning project for the Feed Mill Station Project in Flemington, NJ (Liberty Village). I received my certification as a Certified Nursery & Landscape Professional (CNLP).

My extensive industry experience and passion for design aided me in working on many residential and commercial projects. I work closely with my clients to make the landscape design process rewarding and enjoyable from beginning to end. My exceptional creativity and problem-solving skills allow me to come up with innovative solutions for all my client’s needs whether landscaping a new home or upgrading an existing landscape.  "Every client should have a vision of how they want their landscape to feel, sound, smell, and aesthetically look. My experience can help you define that overall theme and make your vision become a reality from start to finish."
