From the Owner
There's no doubt that the number one passion in my life is finding new and better ways to grow and maintain healthier plants. This company is based entirely on that passion (and years learning how to do it).
I am a consulting agronomist, and part of the Amplify agronomy consultant network affiliated with Brookside Laboratories (more on this below).
I am a Certified Professional Turfgrass Manager and hold a certificate in Turfgrass Management from the University of Georgia. I'm also currently working on a Master's degree in Turfgrass Science from Penn State University
I am an ISA Certified Arborist, ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualified Arborist and a Texas Oak Wilt Qualified Arborist so I'm well versed in the needs and behaviors of trees as well.
I am an active member of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), ISA Texas, the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), GCSAA Central Texas chapter, Texas Sports Turf Managers Association, Texas Turfgrass Association, and the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP).
Most importantly, I love to learn. I learn every single day in order to continue to build a knowledge that better serves my clients and gives me the tools to grow and sustain healthy plants.
