Monica Maxwell

Sales Executive – Account Manager

Monica
Monica has been with Alpine since 2017, supporting Alpine’s residential landscape business working closely with customers, quoting, supplying and sourcing quality stock all over the east coast of Australia.

Monica has come through the Alpine ranks, having experience across many areas of the nursery. She started at Alpine working in the paddock during which she gained invaluable experience growing Alpine’s quality plants, then moved through the Production and Data Control departments before landing in Customer Service, and now Account Management.

Alpine is the perfect place for Monica to express her love of green spaces, which she has cultivated through her experiences before joining Alpine. After studying Environmental Science at Macquarie University, Monica worked with the Sutherland Shire in their green spaces, followed by bush regeneration for a few years before pursuing horticulture at Alpine.

Monica is constantly learning about the importance of plants in our lives and continues to expand her knowledge of horticulture through education and travel. Alpine provides Monica with the perfect platform to build on her love of plants. She loves wondering the Trademart and the plant beds and admiring the scale and variety of available plants, some of which are very unique.

Xanthorrhoea is a particular favourite. Monica tells us that not only does this plant have numerous names, but it also has numerous uses. It is an Australian native which can handle all sorts of weather conditions and is beneficial to insects and fauna. It is also useful for many Aboriginal cultural uses from its flowers, flower spike, resin and dry leaves.

Monica’s experience with different facets of the business has given her a solid understanding of the nursery. This allows her to provide better feedback on stock quality and size, availability, not to mention patience when things are a little more challenging to supply. Monica loves working with all of the friendly people at Alpine and revels in collaborating with the different departments as they work together as one big team.
