She has spent many years bringing the pride of a well-crafted garden and landscape to Sonoma County and beyond.

Chief Security Officer

Molly is the Chief Security Officer at JDH. Many of you have seen her around the office welcoming you with her tailless wag. She is seven years old and a miniature Australian Shepherd. She is fascinated by black crows, bunnies, and cats. At the mention of the word “cat” at the office, she is out the side door ferociously looking for them in the bushes.

A little known fact about our CSO is that she has been sprayed by a skunk twice in the last two years. Her new goal is to get sprayed once a year. She is also scared by her own shadow, however Molly is always available for anyone who needs any emotional support!
