About Us

I am the owner of a well-established full-service landscape design company looking for a hardworking assistant to work as a high-level personal assistant with room to evolve into an expanded role. I started my company almost 30 years ago and I have always been very hands on, and I act as the operations manager for the company, which is not as small or as simple to manage as it used to be.
I am looking for someone to help me with the day-to-day operations, and to act as my private assistant/consigliere.
The position has enormous potential for growth, and the right candidate would ideally be able to transition to more of a leadership and supervisory role.
This is a unique position, because I am looking for someone to start essentially at the bottom of the business and to learn how we operate while helping me with my own tasks. Since my former manager moved out of state, I have struggled bringing in another manager effectively because the business is full of so many moving parts that it is very difficult to take charge without learning the business first. Because of this, I have decided to look for the right person in a different way. I am willing to train the right person and to work with the right person even if they have minimal experience if they are willing to teach themselves and to work with me.
