I’ve been lucky enough to start my professional career at the Arnold Arboretum. Before graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in horticulture from the University of Massachusetts, I was an Isabella Welles Hunnewell intern in 2016. The following year I returned as a Term Horticulturalist assisting full-time staff with maintaining the living collection. In January 2018, I became a Horticulture Project Assistant to help with the continuation of projects that better collections management.

When I’m not enjoying my time at the Arboretum, you’ll find me in my own garden with a cup of coffee in hand.
