If Sally were sneaking through the alley you may not have noticed her. Quiet, and petite she goes about her work with a perpetual smile and a let’s get this done attitude. A degree in Parks and Recreation led her to management roles in County Parks but her love of landscaping and the ability to get out from behind a desk brought her to us...
