Rachel grew up in Indiana where her Mother and Grandmothers first instilled in her the love of gardening. It wasn’t until college that Rachel realized she could turn her love of plants into a career. At Hanover College, Rachel studied alongside her favorite professor in a Dendrochronology Lab and was the Student Manager of Hanover’s Greenhouse. Following her graduation with a degree in Biology, Rachel was an intern for a non-profit on Sanibel Island. There, she fell in love with the beauty of Florida. As Operations Manager for C3, Rachel assists the maintenance team, keeping our current properties beautiful, and the install crew, setting up new properties with beautiful C3 Gardens designs.
Now comfortably calling Florida “home” you can find Rachel in her free time kayaking on Pine Island or wandering local garden centers looking for unique additions to her ever growing plant collection.
