Rebecca has been with us since 2005. Her responsibilities include working with event staff to ensure that garden events run smoothly, working with garden volunteers, managing plant sale activities and taking care of greenhouse growing. Her involvement in helping the Garden grow, teaching and learning from volunteers, and the working the quiet mornings are all some of Rebecca’s favorite parts about working at the IBG.

Outside of work, Rebecca enjoys camping, biking, rafting the river, eating seafood, and spending time with a large family of 4 children, 19 grandchildren, 2 dogs and 35 koi.
