Through my experience working with and for Dee, as an employee, as a partner, and as a fellow volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters, I always found her to be organized, creative, and persistent in accomplishing her goals.
This is especially evident through her success in running her long-time business, Eden Market and Garden Center, on Martha’s Vineyard. Throughout her almost 30 years in business Dee tirelessly ran the store; keeping things innovative, fresh, and inviting. She was not afraid to try something new, and if it didn’t work out she learned from the experience and moved forward. This is how her store evolved.
