Married with two teenagers in Northern Virginia, working in Montgomery County, MD, and gardening every chance I get. Graduated from Virginia Tech with a horticulture degree and have been involved in horticultural communications for more than 20 years. I have written over 70 articles for magazines such as Horticulture, The American Gardener, Chesapeake Home, Early American Life, and Virginia Gardener. I was an active member of the Maryland Horticultural Society and wrote articles for the newsletter. For Brookside Gardens, I developed and presented a workshop and handout entitled “Newcomer’s Guide to Gardening in the Metropolitan Area” and I developed a hands-on workshop on plant propagation. As a member of the Potomac Unit of the Herb Society of America, I have solicited ideas and experiences from members and wrote articles for the newsletter on specific herbs. I facilitated a garden club at my office for several years. Currently, I am a member of the Garden Writers Association and the Potomac Unit of the Herb Society of America. Although I have a typical suburban yard with many perennials, annuals, and shrubs, I am interested in edible gardening and encouraging and teaching others to do the same.
