Horticulture Professional Intern
The Walt Disney Company
May 2013 - Aug 2013 (3 months)
As a Horticulture intern, I experienced the installation, maintenance and upkeep of the various theme park grounds. Greenhouse and nursery management were also taught as well as their facilitation methods. Interns also were informed about Florida's plant palette (Zone 9a and 9b) in order to produce a design proposal for the grounds of Disney World. The projects were then presented in front of a panel in order to exemplify our written, verbal and presentation skills.
Independent Residential Landscape Designer
San Diego, CA
Mar 2013 - Apr 2013 (1 month)
The homeowners desired an alteration of their front yard with drought tolerant plants in order to decrease their water bill. I designed a California native garden consisting of colorful shrubs, succulents and shade trees. Humming bird and butterfly attractor plants played a role in the palette for their infant child.
