I graduated from the University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point in 1997 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Urban Forestry. I went on to work for a tree care company near the Twin Cities for several years before finding my home at Wachtel, near friends and family. I started out working on production crews to prune, remove, plant trees and other on-the-job tasks. Since being with Wachtel Tree Science, I have been in production and sales. I have also been a part of industry related organizations like the Wisconsin Arborist Association – serving in several capacities including being President of the organization in 2015. Now, as Vice President at Wachtel Tree Science, I have been able to meet a lot of great clients and continue to assist the company where I can.
When not at work, I continue to enjoy being outside bike riding, hiking, camping, fishing and hunting. I also spend my free time being involved in my son’s baseball league as well as my own church sponsored softball league. I am active in supporting the youth league to ensure that the sport is honored and enjoyed by the kids and their parents.
As a Board Certified Master Arborist, I approach tree care with the attitude that the homeowner will ultimately do what is best for their situation and for their trees based on my recommendations. I will offer advice based on what I have learned and know about trees to provide the best options for them and their landscape. I appreciate having the opportunity to educate and assist clients in any way possible.
