About Me

Hello! I'm Jamie, mother of two, Horticulturist, SoCal Soul creator and beach-loving barefoot hippie at heart. 


As a Southern California native, I grew up surrounded by lush natural landscapes and some of the most incredible plants. As an adult in the Midwest, several years ago, I found my plant-loving soul had transitioned into vegetable gardening and houseplants. These plants became my escape through some difficult life transitions and long days in the corporate world. I was burnt out and generally felt overwhelmed by a never-ending to-do list both at work and home. 


At the end of 2021 after a lot of consideration, planning, and one giant leap of faith (mixed in with some sheer crazy!) I left my secure 9-5 job to go back to school for a degree in Horticulture. It was time to pursue something that excited me and plants are it! 


I now enjoy sharing with others what I've learned through workshops, and classes, as well as conversing at farmers markets and pop-up events around the area. I hand-pick everything I offer with the intent to provide quality products and plants that will put a smile on your face the moment you encounter them. Life can be challenging and lonely but plants provide a way to create community and improve mental health. 


It's my heart's desire by creating SoCal Soul others can also find encouragement to pursue a new avenue of joy that's been building in them. Plants have a unique way of providing purpose, happiness, and good health, all in one. They enhance homes and offices with their beauty and character, making great additions as living décor. And ultimately they're a great conduit to bring people together. I hope you feel inspired and find some beautiful greenery & gifts to bring those positive SoCal Soul vibes your way!
