Meet the Team


Stephannie - General Manager
Retiring from her 35 years as a high school chemistry teacher, Stephannie is excited to bring her love and knowledge of plants and gardening to Kalleco Nursery. Growing up helping her mother who was a florist and now being an avid gardener herself, she has a lot to offer, including her positive attitude and contagious smile. When she is not teaching chemistry or running the nursery, Stephannie loves to walk her dogs and teaches several fitness classes. Fun fact - once upon a time Mark Masseo (Kalleco's Owner) was one of Stephannie's chemistry students as well.
