Karen from Columbia

Hello! My name is Karen Criales, I’m from Colombia and I have been in the United States for over 8 years now. I love being outside in spring when everything is turning green again; however, my favorite season is winter! Crazy coming from someone that is from Colombia, but it is true.

I lived in Minnesota for most of the 8 years I have been here. That is where I got my degree in Landscape Architecture. Now I am in CLC working on an Associate degree in Horticulture. If you have questions, doesn’t matter how small they are, please ask me.

Best,
Karen
