~ About me ~

The nymph behind Native Nymph...

My love for nature began as a young kid making mud-pies, collecting + inspecting insects, and climbing trees in my backyard in Montgomery County, PA. I later learned I could transform my love for the outdoors into a career! I skipped around initially after high school, going to college for Fine Arts, then Psychology. I loved creating art and helping people and wanted to integrate the two into a formfitting lifestyle. My passion for creativity goes beyond the gardens as I truly bask in making wild-crafted art with foraged nature-found goodies. For my clients that includes making naturalistic containers for the holidays, or grapevine wreaths. I have always had a knack for art and creation since a very young age.

     My gardening journey however began when I was 19yrs old with a local organic fine gardening business here in Bucks County. I was taught proper pruning techniques and most importantly about the ecological value in organic garden care. This honed my passion for the Earth into pure hard work. Best of all, I was able to utilize my creativity. I wanted to continue my passion of organic fine gardening with an immense focus in ecological conservation in my own business endeavors. To hone my creative passion in honor of the Earth is what I love most; to beautify the spaces that our plants occupy with tender loving care. My professional suggestions will always come with love for our Earth and environment, first and foremost.

     I love learning more each and every day. Outside of the garden, I'm often exploring nature preserves, reading books about the natural world, listening to podcasts, or watching lectures by institutes and gardeners alike renowned in the horticultural world. I am currently enrolled in the Ecological Gardening Certificate by the Mt. Cuba Center in Delaware. I am also studying medicinal herbalism through Rosemary Gladstar's herbalist program. Through her program, I also became a member of the United Plant Savers under the International Union for Conservation of Nature. When I am not studying and absorbing more knowledge, I spend my time cooking fresh organic meals, tending to my own garden, hiking, kayaking, creating art, or travelling. In the winter, I spend my time helping Peace Tree Farm's organic operation. Locally owned by the wonderful Traven family, who also further fueled my passion of learning, as I am fascinated by their utilization of biological control for pest management. What a beautiful thing it is to share community with those that also share a pure love for plants!
