With over 23 years working in the horticulture industry, I’m bringing together my background in sales, growing and product development at such companies as Griffin Greenhouse Supplies and North Creek Nursery to help Must Have Perennials breeders. My love of horticulture was cultivated in my grandparent’s vegetable garden and home orchard.
I graduated from Temple University’s Horticulture program and began my career as an intern in the new products department at Green Leaf Plants. Perennials have been my passion for most of my career and I am happy to bring all my experiences together to serve our amazing breeders and set them up with a supply chain of the highest quality growers.
We at Must Have Perennials look forward to working with you!
