Colleen Meiring

Peabody

I was born to be wild and go wherever my sister the wind may take me. I have a Master in Rabble Rousing and a PHD in Sarcasm with a minor in questioning authority. I have mastered the art of not taking myself seriously.

Favorite Cocktail: Most anything on the rocks.

Can be Quoted Saying: "Sailor Language *%$@&" (Let’s just say the swear jar overflows in the busy season)

Interpretation: No one has ever died from getting the wrong color plant. It’ll all work out.

Theme Song: Proud Mary by Tina Turner (Not from CCR!)

Joy Fisher-Griffin

Account Specialist

B.S. in Family Services (1980); Two years later I figured out that working with plants is far easier than working with people; if a plant has a problem you water it, spray it, or put it on the compost pile, you just can’t do that with people! And thus my 30+ years in horticulture began!

I have been part owner of a retail greenhouse specializing in the unusual, including 425 varieties of perennials; a sales person in a high-end retail garden center. On the wholesale side of the industry I have been a sales rep at a major landscape supply company selling nursery stock, perennials and annuals, as well as selling perennial liners and nursery stock to growers in Michigan, Ohio, Western New York and Ontario. That’s how I met the Moose and the Squirrel!

Favorite exterior plants: Perennials

Favorite interior plants: African Violets

Jackie Grow

Marketing Production Coordinator

My title here is Marketing Production Coordinator. Once I figure out what that actually entails I'll let you all know. But for now I do a little bit of everything to help out around here. Anything from watering and planting to office work and occasionally answering a phone.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture with a specialization in landscape design, construction and management from Michigan State University. Go Green! Out of college I worked for a couple different landscape companies doing design, estimation, maintenance and install of landscapes to koi ponds. Before joining team Moose & Squirrel I even gained experience in academia as a college advisor at MSU for the Institute of Agricultural Technology. Now I'm back to what I love doing, working with plants!

Favorite Plant: Amaryllis.

Favorite Cocktail: I love a good margarita or just about anything with rum.

Rita Marcero

Receptionist

I’ve been working in the green industry for over 40 years. Although I’m semi-retired, I try to help Moose & Squirrel when I can. Its mostly answering phones & filing paperwork but I can still pull an order or load a van if needed. I’m the friendly voice on the phone, the one to hand out granola bars & water for pick-ups or the one to roll my eyes when they make bad jokes. (And, believe me, there are a lot!)

Favorite Annual: Vinca Periwinkle

Favorite Beverage: Irish Whiskey (on the rocks, of course)

Lee Steffensky

Fearless Leader

No further information is available. We believe he is in the witness protection program. There’s a reason he carries a flip phone! (Can’t break this brick!!)

Favorite Quote: There’s a limit to good taste but, there’s no limit to bad taste.

Favorite Cocktail: The Last Word (created at the DAC, 1916). Call for the recipe.

Favorite Song: September by Earth, Wind & Fire
