Having grown up immersed in the tree care industry, I was fortunate to develop a deep appreciation for the science of arboriculture and develop my own passion for preserving trees and the precious resource they are. My father, who is a Board Certified Master Arborist®, instilled in me a love for trees and a commitment to preserving this invaluable resource.

From a young age, he would bring me along to the annual meetings of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Mid-Atlantic chapter, covering Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. These gatherings, held on university grounds, are a goldmine of knowledge, offering insights on proper tree care, safe work practices, and updates on current issues impacting our area, including emerging pests and diseases. The experts who speak at these seminars have always inspired me, and I have aspired to reach their level of professionalism.

I remember becoming a Certified Arborist in 2009, and what a milestone that was in my career. It was a way to signify my thorough understanding of tree biology and proper care techniques, distinguishing me as a dedicated professional in the tree care industry.
