I have worked at the Arboretum since 2007. As part of the Landscape Management Plan, my work is concentrated on Weld Hill, the Rhododendron and Kalmia collections, and part of the conifer collection. Prior to my arrival at the Arboretum, I worked as an arborist for commercial tree care companies in the  MetroWest area outside Boston. I like being outside and especially enjoy fishing, hiking, and traveling.
