Garden Design From The ground up

I have lived in the East Bay Area my entire life: Berkeley, Point Richmond, Pinole, Montclair, and Orinda.  I have a degree in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley and a Certificate in Garden Design from UC Berkeley Extension.

I have spent most of my professional career managing retail technology projects and providing user support.  I have a track record demonstrating outstanding analytical and project management skills.  I focus on customer-centered communication and I balance creativity with practicality.  I believe in delivering work on time and, of course, on budget.

In 2016, I began my new Garden Design career in earnest, updating my skills and knowledge by taking business, technical, horticulture, sustainability, and design classes.  I can provide garden design ideas that you can tackle yourself or hire contractors to install.

​I am a Professional Member of the California Chapter of the APLD (Association of Professional Landscape Designers), currently working toward Certification.
