Kia enjoys anything plant related, gardens, forests,landscaping, flowers and just plain getting her hands dirty. Kia enjoys making other people happy with all things green. She is happiest when she is outside and nature puts her soul at ease. She will soon be a master in gardener and is beyond excited to put her skills to work. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, kayaking and helping her family with their garden needs.
Shawn is the crew manager and a passionate naturalist. Trees and hardscaping are his specialties. He is a Master Gardener and Certified Organic gardener. When not in a garden, he is outside hiking.

"I enjoy see customers ideas come to life", Patrick says. Motivated by the hands-on process that creates beautiful outdoor spaces, he believes nature is a wonderful artistic platform. "You might say I'm a artist by nature." he jokes. "I love the team New Leaf has worked to foster, working with my hands and the earth always gets me excited."
Jessica looks forward to digging into every year with New Leaf Landscape Consulting. Her deep-rooted love for organic gardening and holistic, healthy living keeps her connected to nature. She is a proud INPAWS and INLA member, Master Gardener, and hopes to soon add on, herbal specialist. It is hard to have a bad day when growing beautiful flowers or giving new life by planting a tree.
