Jessica has been with Greenjeans for almost nine months. In that short amount of time she has managed to dip her toe in and excel in every corner of the horticulture business. She has led designs on new contracts, helped clients get exactly what they were looking for in sales, covered our horticulturalists on vacation, while diagnosing a variety of plant ailments. She has signifigantly contributed to the sucess of our Living Wall team, and powered through our non stop crazy Christmas season, all with unshakable enthusiasm. We have really started to wonder how we survive 21 years without her.
