Karen's passion for plants led her to earn a degree in Landscape Horticulture. Her understanding that she wanted to make her living in the Green Industry led her to earn a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration. The combination of these two disciplines has become extremely beneficial in her current position in the Garden Center.

While much of Karen's time is spent 'behind the scenes' entering data for incoming merchandise and assigning POS data, you will also see Karen assisting customers in the garden center. Her wealth of horticultural information makes her a fountain of knowledge which she loves to share. Karen also answers most of the gardening questions that come to us over our website and via phone.

In addition to all the above duties, Karen is in charge of payroll for Mickman Brothers. Her attention to detail is second to none, making sure all of our valuable employees have an accurate paycheck. As you can tell, Karen is an extremely hard worker and able to get a tremendous amount of work done each and every day!
