Enhancing Environments with Indoor Plants – Paige Tisdale



Paige Tisdale is currently the vice president for the IFMA, Portland Oregon and Southwest Washington chapter. Paige also is in a Business Development role for Dennis’ 7 Dees Landscaping. She has a greater affinity for plants than those around her. She learned (and now teaches) the benefits that plants give to us Mentally, Emotionally, Physically, and Subconsciously. These multiple angles have grown her passion for enhancing our environments indoors and out through moss art, living walls, green roofs, and more.
Office spaces need to attract and retain top talent, help mental health issues, and make people feel awesome. She works with designers, architects, and facilities teams to help bring nature into the office.
She is an Ambassador for plants everywhere, and will continue to share in whatever way people will listen.
Paige loves interacting with and helping others. She loves building long lasting and meaningful relationships, and has proved that honesty and transparency go a long way in forging these connections.
Getting to share her passion and see other people enjoy the end results of her work, grow relationships, and become a trusted partner, rather than ‘just another supplier’ is very important to her.
