What does participating in this event mean to you? This event supports our community, and that’s a very important thing to me. Specifically, I’ve always participated in gerontology projects and supporting our aging community, and that’s one of the things the auxiliary does. It’s part of my core.
Can you tell us about your background? I was raised on a farm in North Carolina. I do have an education in horticulture science and landscape architecture. I have traveled the world as a gardener and also as a professional. I enjoy teaching more than anything, so I really enjoy working with my clients and achieving success with them long-term.
Your table theme is “La Dolce Vita.” Can you tell us about that? La dolce vita is especially significant to me because I love cooking, entertaining and sharing. This is an opportunity to share that sweet life and hopefully inspire some people to throw that party outside.
