I started my career in the tree industry more than 30 years ago. I started my career as a groundsman for a small family-owned business in Wheat Ridge. I spent the next few years moving to different companies as I went to college working on my associates, with the intent of leaving the tree business when I obtained my bachelor’s. However, in 1998, I started working at another family-owned company in Lakewood and I stayed. I worked my way up in the company and ended up staying for 20 years. During that time, I acquired a passion not only for arboriculture but for the interactions I had with my customers. I am at my best when I am serving others and I am very excited to bring my passion and skill-set to this company.

I started my career in the tree industry in 1997. With no arbor-culture experience, I walked into a small family business in Lakewood and was placed in an entry-level position, splitting wood. Over the next 25 years, I worked in every department in the company. Having an entrepreneur spirit, I quickly jumped on the opportunity to be partners with Bill. I now run the Trim, PHC and Snow divisions for Autumn Tree and enjoy mentoring the younger climbers in our company.

Morty our shop dog and Charlie (aka our shop cat of many names) are best friends! They spend their days providing much needed love and support to all of our office staff and work crews. They work hard all day chasing each other around the shop, being loud while we answer your phone calls, helping us with our snacks and meals, and of course greeting all of our lovely vendors and clients that come through the doors. They have been a great addition to the Autumn Tree family and our days would not be the same without them.
