Shannon Carlton

Head of Office Operations

Shannon has always been drawn to small business teams that emphasize a culture of cultivation and education. She has spent many years bringing the pride of a well-crafted garden and landscape to Sonoma County and beyond. Now, she specializes in cultivating the individual dreams of clients and growing the wealth of her community. She seeks to serve the day-to-day needs of clients with a friendly smile and high level of service.

Shannon hails from Santa Cruz where her parents and grandma still live. She attended Cabrillo College in Aptos.  Her pride and joy is her Meyer’s parrot Misha. He is “oh-so-cute”, and will tell you as much, being a bit of a talker (and sometimes squawker).



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 six 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. She has a new goal to get sprayed once a year. She is also scared by her own shadow.

She is always available for anyone who needs any emotional support!
