New MG Program Assistant, Leilani Konyshev

Hello Master Gardeners,

I am so thrilled to be joining this team and working with all of you! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself.

I grew up in the great state of Alaska and moved to Reno in the fall of 2004 to attend UNR where I received a bachelor’s degree. I moved back home to Alaska where I eventually enrolled in Graduate school and met my future husband while playing on a softball and flag football team. Being the rock nerd that he is, I knew UNR would be a great spot for him to pursue graduate school. We made our way back to Reno and we have been here since 2012. I finished graduate school in the fall of 2016 with Master of Arts in Teaching degree. I have spent the last 10 years working in various formal and informal education settings working with kids and adults.

In my spare time, I love getting outdoors and surrounding myself with trees, mountains, water, and a tent. I am an obsessed dog mom to two ridiculous adorable creatures, Pippin and Samwise. We love taking road trips and exploring the world around us. I am an avid Sci-Fi fan and have been known to binge watch Hallmark Movies when the husband is out of town.

Feel free to stop by and say hi! I love meeting new people and cannot wait to get to know you all more, and learn more about the world of horticulture.

Happy Gardening!
