Welcome to GreenLily!
I’m Dawn Truelsen and GreenLily is my business where I offer Landscape Design & Aesthetic Pruning services.
By weekday, I work at California State University, Fresno in the Division of Technology Services where I’m the User Experience Architect in the Enterprise Applications and Information Systems group. Look me up on LinkedIn for details.
But evenings and weekends are when I enjoy being outside pruning in people’s gardens, designing landscapes, consulting on landscape and home orchard maintenance, volunteer pruning at the Shinzen Japanese Garden or giving seminars and lectures on all sorts of pruning and landscaping topics.
Here’s a snapshot of my background:
- I am a Fresno County Master Gardener (2007),
- I have a certificate in Landscape Architecture from UC Berkeley Extension (2014) which is accredited as a Masters Degree toward licensing,
- I have passed two of the landscape architecture licensing exams, LARE Sections I & II (2015 & 2016),
- I am an Associate member of the American Society of Landscape Architects,
- I studied Aesthetic Pruning at Merritt College in Oakland, completing the Aesthetic Pruning coursework as well as three years of the Hands-On Pruning program (2014),
- I am a member of the Aesthetic Pruners Association (2017), and
- I am a very recent member of The Association For Garden Communicators (2018).
Please let me know if I can be of service. Feel free to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
