I’m a passionate landscape designer who cares deeply for our world and overall well-being. I have spent over a decade creating unique and meticulously planned designs that bring clients joy.

I love incorporating native plants, stone, and water features. While my design aesthetic is a looser, flowing style juxtaposed against hardscapes and manmade structures, I enjoy flexing my creativity to reflect each client’s style. 


After careers as a microbiologist and a stay-at-home mom raising two wonderful sons, I contemplated my next chapter. I had found a love of gardening and realized I could make it my third career!


Piecing together the puzzle of landscape challenges along with each client’s preferences and end goals intrigues and motivates me. I take a big-picture approach to consider how every property element interacts, from plant colors and textures to hardscapes and structures. Then, I collaborate with clients to create serene settings that support local habitats.

My favorite thing about what I do is when clients tell me I truly heard them and understood their vision!

Education and Experience:

I earned my degree from the Boston Architectural College, Landscape Institute and founded Flint Garden Designs in 2013. Simultaneously, I spent five years working with the Georgetown Conservation Commission learning about wetland restoration projects, turtle nesting site protection, and how to navigate through local and state bylaws to protect our native wetland ecosystems.


I previously obtained my B.S. in biology from Denison University and spent seven years in both research and clinical laboratory settings. My comprehensive studies and experiences have significantly influenced my perspective and concern for environmental issues.


As a member of the American Professional Landscape Designers (APLD), Ecological Landscape Association (ELA), Native Plant Trust (NPT), and the Massachusetts Horticultural Society (MHS), I am constantly seeking ways to bring clients the best outdoor designs and solutions.
