I love plants.
But besides that, I am a certified landscape designer with the Virginia Society of Landscape Designers (VSLD) and a Virginia Certified Horticulturist. After receiving a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University's School of the Arts, I went on to study landscape design and horticulture from both the University of Richmond and J. Sargeant Reynolds College.
My dad, the late Bill Spell, was a landscape architect with expertise in the famous Gillette gardens seen across Virginia. He is a huge reason why I became more interested in plants and landscape design and I am forever grateful to him for this gift.
I love gardening, but I most enjoy working outside with my son at my side and my flock of ducks quacking and foraging.
