Lindsay Tewell grew up in Calvert County, Md. as a tomboy, exploring the woods and splashing in streams.
She actually liked mowing her parents' lawn. Nature hikes renew her.
So after a stint working as a waitress, it makes sense that she made her way to a career in landscaping.
“My favorite thing is to be outside,” says Lindsay, a supervisor at Level Green Landscaping.
Lindsay has been working in landscaping for about five years, mostly at small companies. She worked her way up, learning new skills, mastering more complicated equipment, taking on more responsibility.
