Operations Manager


How I arrived here

It was 1993 and I was looking for summer work and was thinking to myself let’s try landscaping. Little did I know what landscaping actually was, to me it was a push mower, weed eater, and a broom (Ha!) how I was wrong. After my first summer working with Community Green I was trained on many things ranging from commercial mowers to spring time bed edging and mulching to bush trimming and so on. The following year I was promoted to foreman the youngest in the company and my passion for the industry had grown. It was there that I decided I found what I loved to do. I have had many accomplishments in the industry and meet many people along the way. Built many teams that have helped to create a culture of success and teamwork within the company.
