Kate has been with Kirkwood Gardens since the spring of 2016.
After graduating with a B.A. in English from Lindenwood in 2010, she spent 5 years living in Kansas City working in office settings. It was during this time that she realized what she really wants to do is work with plants. For Kate, working in horticulture is the ideal intersection of work environment (outdoors), day to day work, and her interest in ecological sustainability. Kate's favorite thing about working at the garden center is helping people and learning new things every day. She is enrolled in the Horticulture program at Meramec.
In her freetime, Kate enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking, camping, and being outdoors.
Favorite Plants- Viburnums, Rhus, Coneflowers
