Like many orchid hobbyists, she started with a purple Vanda bought at a local garden show – that orchid led to several others as well as membership and participation in a local orchid society. As her collection grew, she took a class in Orchidology at the University of Florida and joined the West Palm Beach Judging Center, becoming an accredited judge in 2003.
