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 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.
I began my new Garden Design career in 2016, updating my skills and knowledge by taking business, technical, horticulture, sustainability, and design classes. I can provide design ideas ready for contractors or for do-it-yourselfers - with phases outlined for completion over a period of time, depending on budget concerns. I am very excited to have the time to spend on garden design and the ability to leverage the knowledge and skills of fellow members of the APLD.
