Corinne Moderhock: From Finance to Foliage
From my earliest memories of gardening with my mother, I've always been drawn to the outdoors. My professional journey took me into the financial realm, where I spent years mastering the intricacies of the business world as a CFO. But the call of nature was persistent. It was only a matter of time before I traded in spreadsheets for seedlings, pivoting back to my initial college passion - horticulture. Little did I imagine this path would intertwine with my life partner, Gary, who has been by my side for four decades.
Combining forces with Gary in our venture was a leap of faith. Operating a business with your spouse presents its unique challenges. But with shared vision and passion, we have not only navigated these challenges but have thrived in unison. The fruits of our collaboration can be seen in the serene and sustainable landscapes we design.
Outside the confines of work, Gary and I are perennial wanderers. Drawn to destinations brimming with natural beauty, our travels often resemble botany expeditions more than typical vacations - much to the amusement of our three nature-loving children.
With the backdrop of these experiences, I've developed a deep understanding of the symbiotic relationship between humans and nature. I'm driven to help clients foster this connection, curating spaces that are not only a visual treat but also a haven for the soul. Merging my financial expertise with my horticultural knowledge has empowered me to design landscapes that are as economically sound as they are aesthetically pleasing.
Being an integral part of a community that cherishes nature is an honor. With every project I undertake, I'm reminded of the wonders of the world around us and the pivotal role we play in safeguarding it for posterity.
In the rare moments when I'm not immersed in work, you'll find me lost in my garden, nurturing plants with the same love and care I've received from the earth. Or, perhaps, packing bags for another escapade with Gary. My life's journey, with its twists and turns, has been nothing short of magical, and I cherish every moment and memory crafted along the way.
