I am a horticulture instructor at Gateway Technical College in zone 5 Kenosha, WI. I teach classes in plant identification, greenhouse growing, pest control, marketing lawn and garden products. Our college has a greenhouse which we operate sustainably using beneficial insects and non toxic chemical controls. I have a bachelor of science degree in horticulture from Colorado State University and a Master of Education from the University of California Davis. My previous experience includes work as a senior nursery floral buyer for Safeway Stores in Dallas, TX and Oakland, CA. I’ve also worked in garden center sales and as a marketing manager for a wholesale bedding plant greenhouse. I was self employed at one point working as a farm market grower. I have been involved in horticulture my entire life, have a rich background of experiences and am a continual and enthusiastic student of all things green and growing! My purpose here is to compile all the horticulture things I do, learn and need to share, with students and industry, in one place!
