As a Seasonal Gardener, I am thrilled to work with the Horticulture and Landscape Department in stewarding some of the finest collections of woody plants at the Arnold Arboretum. Prior to starting work at the Arboretum, I received a Bachelor’s in Environmental Studies at Bates College, where I cultivated my interest in dendrology and New England plant species. From there, I spent one year at the University of Copenhagen and one year at the University of Padova attaining a Master’s in Sustainable Forest and Nature Management. I wrote my master’s thesis on climate associations within the xylem anatomy of the European Beech (Fagus sylvatica). I feel very grateful for the opportunities I had to study wild and cultivated woody plants in many different ecosystems across Europe.

Having grown up in Needham, MA, I am excited to be back in Boston and doing what I love. In my free time, I am passionate about spending time in nature, whether I am hiking, dog walking, or just identifying some trees.
