I am a fun mom of two beautiful children, wife and a business owner in Placerville.  Since childhood I have been a very creative person I loved creating art, jewelry and anything with color as a kid.  During my teenage years I studied music and opera, attended Walnut Hill Arts School & Berklee College of music studying performance and music therapy.  At 21 I purchased a 40 foot school bus, gutted it, built a home and took to the highway travel the United States and settled in Arizona on an organic farm where my love for gardening really began.  I traveled and I’ve lived all over the country including Hawaii.  At 26,  I met my future husband at Bonnaroo music festival we hardly talked for about two years and finally decided, hey let’s try and make something work.
