Mike began mowing yards as a teenager and his passion for horticulture and design started from there. Prior to purchasing Northshore Nursery in January 2019, Mike owned a successful landscape contractor business for over 25 years. Mike is also a graduate of The University of Tennessee Knoxville with a degree in Ornamental Horticulture and Landscape Design.

Behind every great man is his leading lady! In this case, it is Mandy - the glue that holds it all together! Mandy works behind the scenes to make sure that everything at Northshore Nursery is running smoothly. Before starting their business, Mandy had a 25-year career in the food industry and graduated from the University with a degree in nutrition.

Together, Mike and Mandy have a shared goal of becoming a "destination" nursery for plant enthusiasts, professional landscape contractors, and homeowners and being recognized for always being on the cutting edge of new up-and-coming plants and landscaping trends.

Mike and Mandy also have one daughter, Morgan, who is currently a Junior at the University of Tennessee. Another face you are sure to see around the nursery is Heartly the Golden Retriever who greets all of our visitors with a smile!
