 Profile

I am a native of the mountains of southwest Virginia. I hold a B.S. in Horticulture, and a M.S. in Education from Virginia Tech. I have worked as a greenhouse manager, an estate gardener, and as a representative for a Dutch-based company that administers plant patent agreements throughout the southeastern United States. I now am proud to call the upstate of South Carolina home. I enjoy sharing with other gardeners and learning about the ecology of the Carolinas.

 Extension and Outreach

I am the District Extension Director for the Upstate. This includes Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, McCormick, Oconee, Pickens and Spartanburg Counties.
