A nurse by profession, she is currently working as an HR manager of their family business, Great Hope General Services, Inc. She considers gardening as the best way to connect with nature these days and cherishes each plant experience as a magical moment. Because for her, plants make her feel calm and give her a sense of inner peace. For her Gaan plant, she chose a shrub with lovely pastel green-colored called Green Dust in a locally handcrafted terracotta pot. Message us if you have inquiries about the plant and/or the pot.
