Passionate about Safety


  • Active in the landscape industry since 2005.
  • Attended the University of Minnesota/Waseca back when you could earn a degree in Horse Stable Management. It didn't take long for me to figure out making a living with horses is next to impossible. Lucky for me, I also love gardening so I turned my hobby into a career!
  • I truly enjoy helping people and work hard to be a trusted resource.
  • I am passionate about our employees' safety and want everyone to leave work the same as when they arrive in the morning – injury-free.
  • Southview Design is a great company and a great place to work. Every day I am surrounded by the best and the brightest I have ever worked with!
  • When not at work, you can find me riding my quarter horse, Chevy; hiking the trails with my three dogs - Louie, Kesh, and Lucy; digging in my perennial gardens, or dining out at new-found restaurants.
