What’s the biggest challenge in your profession?
The biggest challenge I have is finding and hiring qualified individuals who can live up to the Kaleidoscope standard.
What’s your favorite plant right now and why?
My favorite plant right now and always is Lilacs, to me they represent family— they are considered my birth flower (since they bloom in April) and my family has always had Lilacs on the property and made a point to plant new ones together any time we moved.
How do you keep your knowledge and skills up to date?
I am currently in school at Edmonds Community College to complete my landscape design degree, so that definitely keeps me up to date and relevant. In addition to that I attend WSNLA and WALP meetings and take opportunities for workshops and classes in the area when I can.
