Want To Make Your Community Pollinator-Friendly?

I help municipalities and HOAs support native plants with their policies and landscaping.

It costs 5 times as much to maintain a conventional landscape as it does to maintain a native plant landscape.

Jennifer Michelle, MPH

I provide technical assistance to municipalities, solar developers, and HOAs on creating pollinator-friendly communities. My services include cost-benefit analyses, goal-setting, stakeholder surveys, policy review, sourcing, project management, and community education. 

I serve on my town’s Zoning Board of Appeals and am treasurer of the Healthy Corinth Coalition. I was also president of my HOA for many years. I have an MPH in Epidemiology and Parasitology from Tulane School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine and have worked as a healthcare marketing consultant since 2017.


You will get everything you need for your attorney, landscaper, public works team, and garden committee to move forward.

Jennifer attended a planning board meeting with us to present about native plants and pollinators. Having her there to answer questions was very helpful. And her organizational skills and turnaround time throughout our project were fantastic.

Working with Jennifer to educate the Planning Board was a professional and streamlined process. She started with a detailed scope document, promptly scheduled a kick-off call, delivered her report on-time, and responded quickly to our requested clarifications. I am certain we will work with her again.
