My career goal at the Arnold Arboretum is to turn every seed and cutting into a member of our Living Collections, as well as a teaching and learning opportunity for all. My background in private residential horticulture, nursery and greenhouse research, plant tissue culture, and teaching has given me an appreciation for the power of public horticulture. The Arnold Arboretum is a vast living museum with exhibits that respond to the world around them everyday, and these wondrous organisms are truly open and free for all to study and appreciate. It is an honor to be the current plant propagator, given the rich history and future of horticulture.
