Horticulturist, Account Manager
Jill Mullaney grew up on a grain & hog farm in South Dakota. From there, she attended the University of Nebraska & received her BS in Horticulture Production.
Jill interned at the prestigious Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA and then began her career as a Nursery Manager at a landscape nursery.
Since then, Jill has focused on growing, first at Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha, NE and then as the Greenhouse Manager for the Dallas Arboretum for 8 years. Jill managed all aspects of plant production at the arboretum for nearly 3000 plant species grown per year for use in the trials program as well as garden installation. She also collaborated on designs, and installed special events displays and garden designs.
Jill also operates her own boutique floral company, Platinum Petals, servicing special events and weddings.
This year, Jill won the coveted 2017 GrowerTalks/Dummen Orange Young Grower of the Year award at the Cultivate17 event! She's awesome.
Jill holds a Commercial Pesticide Applicator License (3A, 3B), Certification Date 2009 – Present.
Jill has joined our team here at Halleck Horticultural to apply her skills across a wide variety of projects. Jill will be working with Leslie to manage client communication and needs, support green industry business and marketing projects, and basically keep Leslie in check (that's a hefty job). As a skilled horticulturist, she'll also be assisting with and providing new expanded horticultural consulting services for residential homeowners and commercial companies.
As a bonus: She enjoys kittens, wine, naps, flowers, and tacos. No seriously.
