I am a former college instructor, I particularly enjoy the opportunity to continue "teaching" through being a Garden Coach.  Many homeowners are eager to learn more about their own gardens and how to care for them as well as how to take them to the next level.

As a Garden Coach and Designer I have over 30 years of design experience,  I have had the opportunity to work in many areas within the horticultural industry from Historical Landscaper, to Head Gardener at Rosebank in Lambeth, Ontario, greenhouse plant production and many years on the Landscape crew both in northern Ontario and here in London building and maintaining both residential and commercial properties.
