She is an artistic judge for the Garden Club of America (GCA) and received the GCA National Medal for “consistently innovative floral design.” The American Horticultural Society has awarded her the Frances Jones Poetker Award for outstanding contributions to floral design education. Her work has been featured in books and magazines, and she has written a column on “Environmentally Friendly Floral Design.” She is on the faculty of Longwood Gardens in the floral design program; presents lectures and workshops around the country; and designs for weddings and events.
