Roann is originally from Southern California and embodies that creative and laid-back Cali style. She loves her Mojave desert upbringing and is a cactus enthusiast! Roann has been in the military almost 20 years and is currently serving in the PA Air National Guard. Moving around every few years and long deployments prevented Roann from having the garden of her dreams so she focused on small gardens and potted plants to enjoy her passion. Upon leaving each duty station she would gift her plants and creations to friends and neighbors. Now, rooted in Harrisburg, Roann is able to spend more time with her love of gardening. Her sunroom contains thriving tropicals, succulents, ferns and yes, cactus! She also tends 2 large raised beds for fruit and veg during the summer months.
She also enjoys traveling the world. Roann has been to 5 continents and over 85 countries. Some of her favorite adventures include Morocco, the UK, Norway, and Egypt. Roann further fulfills her passion for the outdoors by Hiking Central PA with her dog, Bubba. She also rides a motorcycle, is a killer chef, and a dedicated youth volleyball coach in the region.
