Alumni, BS plant sciences 2014

Following graduation, I landed a marketing and communication internship at Cornell Plantations (now Cornell Botanic Gardens), where I assisted  with the development of interpretive materials, displays, and printed material, wrote and distributed press releases about events, news items, and other noteworthy topics. Once this internship ended my passion for the plant sciences brought me the most isolated place on earth; the Hawaiian Islands .The National Tropical Botanical Garden in Kalaheo Hawaii became my home, where I  aided in conservation efforts within the plant extinction capital of the world.

Alumni MPS 2013 (Public Garden Leadership)

 I am working for Chanticleer Garden, one of the Philadelphia area’s newest and most visually exciting gardens. The 35-acre garden is romantic, sculptural, seemingly carefree, yet maintains world-class standards in design and horticultural excellence. Since June '13 I've been working at the leadership level, as the Public Programs Manager. I manage the guest experience, garden ticketing and sales, the education program, and marketing and publicity for the nonprofit public garden.
