Being a second generation landscaper, as a small child I grew up with large dump trucks and a nursery full of plants as my playground. During the winter months there were rows of Christmas Trees and stacks of firewood that provided endless mazes to explore right outside my front door.
As I grew older I was able to work with my father in the summers and learn the trade. It was a really good way to spend time together while also learning the value of an honest day’s work.
I really enjoyed working outside in the open air and the ever changing scenery of different projects. I knew from a very young age that I could never happily work within the confines of the same four walls day after day. Working with nature captured my imagination and was a great creative outlet for me.

Operations at Community Green Group
I always love to see the contrast between the “before” and “after” of each job. Being able to see my vision take shape and transform what often times began as an eye sore, to slowly turning into an aesthetically pleasing, inviting, and balanced landscape. I consider myself to be very fortunate to work within an industry where your efforts are so visibly noticeable. It lends itself to a great amount of pride and satisfaction of a job well done.
My journey leading me to Community Green has been long and adventurous. I have worked for much larger and much smaller companies along the way. I had always hoped to find a happy medium between the strength of a larger company, and the more personal touch of a smaller service provider. I have now found that balance here at Community Green.
