Director of Retail Accounts
Jessica DeGraaf is a lifelong gardening enthusiast who quite literally grew up in the horticulture business, learning about plants while toting hoses through her parents’ garden center in Northern Michigan. After receiving undergraduate and master's degrees in Horticulture from Michigan State University, she went on to work for numerous large grower operations in support-oriented roles.
In her current position as Director of Retail Accounts for Proven Winners, Jessica is focused exclusively on building relationships with and innovative marketing programs for independent garden centers. Jessica has never met a plant she doesn’t like and enjoys spending her free time gardening, hiking, and traveling with her husband, two children, and her dachshund Brunhilde.
