in Ortonville, Michigan and does consulting and design. Celia grew up among her mother's gardens but did not become the avid gardener she is today until injuries caused her to retire from training, teaching and showing horses. She found something she was as excited about as horses and received certification from Michigan State University as an Advanced Master Gardener, Master Woodland Steward and Master Conservation Steward. In 2003 she earned certificates in Gardening Fine Arts as well as Landscape and Garden Design from the Michigan School of Gardening and became an Instructor for the school in 2006. Celia is a member of the Association of Professional Gardeners and the Ecological Landscapers Association. Splitting her time between Michigan and a family camp in the Vermont woods, she is active with Vermont Coverts, which works with property owners to promote stewardship of forests and woodlands for wildlife.
