Two Small Jumps Equals One Big Leap

Tomorrow I'm making a big shift in my life.

It's the day I split my professional life between two places: my position at a botanic garden, plus a new position, teaching landscape design to horticulture students.

I am excited about sharing my enthusiasm for garden design and equally thrilled to learn a fresh perspective from students and fellow faculty. I've learned so much the past eight years from my fellow botanic garden staff, that I can't wait to pass that on too.

This is what popped out of my fortune cookie the other day:

Two small jumps are sometimes better than one big leap.

Though neither of these positions are small by any means, together I think they'll make my creative life richer. And here we go...


  1. Congrats, Lisa! You'll bring a lot as well as learn a lot!

  2. I'd totally take your class! I always thought it was odd how divided Iowa State was about landscape architecture and horticulture. This sounds like some good middle ground.

  3. Both programs are great compliments to each other now.
