A Bit About Me
Born and raised in Dallas, TX. I am a first generation Mexican American. I went to Skyline High School, where I began my horticulture journey. During high school I stated working at a local garden center on the weekends. I later ended up working at Nicholson Hardie where I met my Flower Godmother, Gayla Alders.
After I graduated from college, Gayla encouraged me to look for a job in a floral studio. I love to garden and grow flowers to use in projects or play around with. On top of gardening and flowering, I love to go camping, hiking, kayaking, skiing, yoga and spending time with family and friends.
