Working for Suburban, I’ve been to lots of homes to help people enhance their landscapes. Suburban is a great resource to gardeners and homeowners alike. It’s been a nice place to work knowing that your company and its brand have had such a long commitment to Kansas City landscapes.

I’ve really enjoyed working here for the past 20 years.  Suburban has always been a growing and evolving company that stays connected with its customers and the community, and that’s important to me.  It’s been a place where I’ve been able to learn, grow, and now lead.  I’m still learning and growing, though, always!!  But what keeps it interesting is that every day is different and each year brings a new set of challenges.  Plus, the Green Industry is full of wonderful people, and working with wonderful people is always good!

As an artist, plants are my living medium. Working in tropicals and the greenery department allows me to ever expand my creativity using the textures and hues of nature’s palette. Creating custom pieces for my clients is a joy. After 5 years I still learn something new every day. The care for plants is true love and so rewarding.
I can honestly say this is the best career move I have ever made. I work with passionate women, we are a fantastic team and I am a happy human in the jungle.
