Welcome to pachamama inspired!
Hello! I am a Landscape Designer and Garden Consultant with deep roots in Culinary Artistry and Urban Agriculture. My business, Pachamama Inspired, is committed to fostering Earth Stewardship through responsible landscape design and gardening. My designs result in beautiful, multifunctional outdoor spaces that rely on California friendly plants and sustainable materials. I also love adding edible plants, and inspiring my clients to cook with them whenever possible. Some of the consulting services offered by my firm include Landscape Design and Project Management, as well as Garden and Culinary Coaching.
I am a UC Certified Master Gardener, an EPA WaterSense recognized Water Efficient Landscape Professional, and also a professionally trained Chef. My resume includes cooking at notable Los Angeles restaurant establishments including A.O.C., the Strand House, and catering for the Lucques Group. My appreciation for locally grown, outstanding ingredients lead me out of the kitchen and into the garden where, through a twist of fate, I discovered the Landscape Design profession. There I again was blessed with an opportunity to work for a wonderfully talented and well respected Landscape Architecture firm where my skillset was again transformed. Through Landscape Design and Garden Coaching, I found a medium to create meaningful and positive change within my community.
The name Pachamama Inspired gives nod to the importance that healthy soils and gardens play in nurturing our planet and providing us with delicious and nutritious food. In Quechua and Inca tradition, Pachamama is described as the earth goddess presiding over planting and harvesting. Pachamama is often translated more simply into “Mother Earth.” My life experiences have lead me to honor and respect Pachamama as a great source of inspiration in my life. Pachamama inspires and informs every outdoor space I create.
I have been blessed with a unique range of mentor-ship opportunities with an incredibly talented lot of chef’s, farmers and landscape professionals. It is now my mission is to share all of that knowledge, and help others become fulfilled and inspired by Mother Nature. It is my greatest hope that through this work, Pachamama Inspired can shift the trajectory of Climate Change one garden at a time.
