Women in Horticulture December 2021
Tuesday, December 7 at 1PM Central

Meet Joan Dudney, Marketing Manager of Little Prince of Oregon Nursery, a leading nursery grower in the upper Northwest located in Aurora, Oregon. Joan is a “career switcher” getting into horticulture after a successful career leading an independent medical evaluation company. While the medical industry job created frequent travel opportunities to Alaska, the high stress job and a serious health diagnosis presented Joan with an opportunity to re-evaluate her career. Her love of gardening and the peace she found from being in the outdoors prompted her to get a horticulture degree from a two-year program at Clackamas Community College. A single mom of three, she received her horticulture degree and then used an unorthodox approach to getting her first job at Bizon Nursery. After really learning about the industry during her time at Bizon Nursery who specialized in dwarf conifers, specialty conifers and Japanese Maple trees, Joan learned of Little Prince of Oregon Nursery and believed it was a place she would like to work. Joan will share more about how she landed this dream position with the team to start their online store three years ago. Today she is the leading force in their marketing efforts. Come hear more about how Joan persevered when life threw her a curveball and how she successfully navigated a career transition. REGISTER HERE
