Retail associate at a local garden center
At my first job in high school, I fell in love with plants and talking to people about plants. I decided to pursue a degree in horticulture from Penn State University.
Winning the 2022 Carroll Business Challenge has been the highlight of owning my business.
How do I choose? There are so many outstanding local businesses, and it has been an honor being a part of that community. Integrative Dental Wellness and Barrier-Free have outstanding missions and community impact.
I financially support many local nonprofits by choosing rotating charities to donate 1% of my sales to every month. However, one of my favorite nonprofits is Barrier-Free. Barrier-Free’s is to provide inclusive art, self-advocacy, and social programming for adults with disabilities in the community. Barrier-Free’s inclusive design brings together individuals of all abilities to create, express, and achieve.
What is a day off? LOL! When I am not at the store I enjoy beekeeping, gardening, and horseback riding.
My favorite TV show is Schitt’s Creek. The characters and writing is outstanding, its hilarious, and it’s a perfect TV show to watch over and over again.

I enjoy being a part of the local business community as well as all the support members give each other. Being a chamber member has allowed me to make many valuable connections.
