Accomplished Landscape Professional

I began my career with Southview Design in May of 2015 on a landscape installation crew with the goal of learning all aspects of the construction process. For a year and a half, I gained valuable experience working on various construction crews (Production) and enhancement crews (Landscape Care). I worked on a variety of projects, large and small, and learned the process behind constructing great outdoor spaces. I saw first-hand how great designs can be enhanced and grow over time with some hard work, attention to detail, and excellent customer service.

I continue to enjoy a design support role that involves initial site visits to create a base map that evolves into a comprehensive 2D/3D landscape plan set. Through team collaboration and effective communication I work to ensure landscape plans remain accurate from the design phase through the construction phase.

In addition to offering design support, I occasionally work directly with clients serving as their Designer and Sales Representative. I take pride in coming up with design solutions that work on a variety of budgets and will leave the client with an outdoor space that they can truly live in and enjoy for years to come.
