Emerging Horticulture Professional

Nursery Manager, Green Isle Gardens Nursery

4+ years of professional experience with native plants and landscapes

Nick was born and raised in the northwest suburbs of Chicago where he spent much of his childhood playing in the woods and fishing. His love of nature grew stronger as his family made frequent trips to the Wisconsin north woods to stay at their cabin on the lake. After college, Nick promptly started work as an invasive species monitor and ecological restoration technician, restoring the lands he grew up exploring.

Looking for some change from the north, Nick decided to move to Florida and began working for Green Isle Gardens, where he now oversees the day to day functions of the nursery. Nick has gained “boots on the ground” experience working with native plants, in both the nursery and landscape setting. He has been able to watch, first hand, the effects of different pruning techniques and the long term result of proper pruning.

Nick has a B.S. in Fisheries and Wildlife from Michigan State University.
