Eva loves getting down on her belly to commune with the plants as she hones her skills knowing and photographing them. An avid gardener to be sure, she enjoys other activities as well which is why a low maintenance garden works well for her. Camping, backpacking, and mountain biking with her husband and dog are some favorites.
She filled the role of Manager starting in 2017 after a full season with Columbine as a member of the crew in the field where she became familiar with our work, clients, and philosophy.

Born and raised in Colorado, Desiree has a strong love for nature. She grew up in Salida which is a small town where the main source of entertainment is doing things outdoors.

Colleen loves planting and installation jobs with Columbine because it’s so cool to see how a little (or a lot of) work can change a space to something so beautiful and inviting. Colleen says, “Columbine is such a great company and crew to work with. We all inspire each other, have fun, and learn new things everyday.”
In her free time she enjoys working in her garden, hiking, and horseback riding. During the winter she plans on spending time doing woodworking projects and painting. She also enjoys pet sitting and being around animals whenever she can.
Katie believes it’s important to fill your time with the things you love, and to challenge yourself to always be learning something new each day. She thinks Columbine is the perfect place to do just that.
