I grew up in N.E. Minneapolis and obtained my Botany Degree from The University of Wisconsin – Madison. From there interned at Great Smoky Mountains National Park and worked in a plant DNA lab for 1.5 years in College. After college, I worked in a wholesale greenhouse in Iowa for 6 years before coming to Mickman Brothers. A fun fact about me is of over the 50 plants I have in my house my favorite is an avocado I grew from a seed!
