Doris received her Master Gardener Certificate in March 2013 after completing the Master Gardener Program through the Nova Scotia Agricultural College, now Dalhousie University.  Doris discovered she had a real passion for gardening when she moved to Kingston in 2006 and transformed her treeless and empty back yard into a garden with several garden beds, five trees and back fence patio without having any formal gardening education.

During the last course with Dalhousie, Doris had an opportunity to participate in a credit course called The British Garden which included travel to The Netherlands and the UK to attend The Floriade and tour 18 other gardens. 

She has presented several topics to various horticultural societies as well as the Kingston Seniors Centre, such as: The Netherlands and UK Garden Tour, All about Turf, Garden Pests, Beautiful Maui, Hardy & Tender Bulbs and Indoor Plants for Beauty, Health & Wellness.

She is also a watercolour artist and photographer and currently works part-time as a travel agent, designing and leading tours.
