Landscape Designer & Office Manager
With my dad being an arborist, I grew up always trying to answer his favorite question: “What kind of tree is that?” everywhere we went (and now I ask my husband all the time!). I spent much of my childhood going to job sites and helping with maintenance and building small landscape designs my dad would create. While attending the University of Idaho for Theatre Arts, I gradually started taking more and more landscape design classes and by the end of my 4 years, had found myself back in the landscape world and ended up minoring in Landscape Architecture.
Right after my husband and I graduated from U of I (Go Vandals!), we moved to the Seattle area where I got to work with Kryssie for 2 ½ years. In 2018 we decided to move to Boise, Idaho and have lived here since then. We welcomed our first baby right in the middle of the pandemic in May 2020 and we don’t really know what we did with all of our free time before little Emma came in to our lives! When I do have a spare second, I love gardening and being outside, wood burning, embroidery, snowboarding, and the occasional video game. I also run my own Etsy shop and sell my wood burnings and embroidery pieces there and create custom pieces!

I really enjoy getting to work from home in a supportive role as the Office Manager & Landscape Design Assistant for Kismet Design. You’ll often see me posting new blog posts (if you have a topic you’d like to see discussed, let me know!), updating you through our newsletters, and of course, working with Kryssie to get your designs ready to go. I love learning about new plants and materials and how everything works together in a landscape design. I hope to see you on Zoom!
