The name of my business is Soulful Spaces because I create spaces that are grounding and support people in connecting with themselves and nature. With our busy and sometimes stressful lives, having spaces that help us feel nourished and centered are vital to our well being. Often people know they want areas that provide this but feel overwhelmed with all the planning and detail it takes to actually get there. When you add the necessity of choosing the right plants it adds another layer of complexity.
That's where I come in. I guide clients to connect with their values, vision and needs. Then we work together to create a design specifically tailored to them.
I work with all sizes of projects although small spaces are one of my specialties. If you're interested in landscape design, you can click here to learn more.

I grew up on a working farm in Eastern North Carolina. It was there that I began my appreciation for nature and the gift of beauty in our surroundings. I have a degree in Landscape Design from North Carolina State University and studied Landscape Architecture for two years at Louisiana State University. After graduating I tried numerous careers as a floral designer, a hairstylist, a project manager and a metalsmith. Working in these areas gave me an opportunity to meet all kinds of people, explore my creativity and determine my talents.
In 2014, I realized that landscape design was where I was destined to be all along. I got a job at one of the top Design Build companies in San Diego and was back on my original path of landscape design. I now blend landscape design with deeper meaning into spaces filled with intention as well as beauty. It's great to have watched the path come full circle.
I work with individuals as well as businesses to create meaningful, intentional spaces. I have broad plant knowledge with a focus on drought tolerant plants from around the world as well as natives to Southern California.
