Erik and Danielle work tirelessly to bring unique items & a quality experience to visitors at Mill Creek Gardens. They love to explore horticulture across the world and often bring ideas home with them.
Erik went to Milwaukee School of Engineering for electrical engineering & also earned a German bachelors degree while studying in Germany for one year. Erik has spend many hours on the river in Milwaukee rowing proudly for his alma mater. He has a passion for renewable energy & conservation. He even convinced Danielle to buy a composting toilet for their home. Erik is an engineer by day and a gardener by night.
Danielle also went to college in Milwaukee & played volleyball for the Marquette women’s volleyball team. Shortly after graduating, she played professionally in Sweden. Danielle has also spent time teaching in Milwaukee and coaching college volleyball at the University of Iowa. Whatever Danielle does, she does it with passion and energy. And she loves getting over 12,000 steps in the greenhouse every day!
Danielle & Erik hope that visitors at Mill Creek Gardens experience their passion first hand, and catch the gardening bug. While Erik is the mastermind behind the entire operation, Danielle focuses her energy on marketing, workshops, and customer relations.

If Bruce isn’t with his puppies, you’ll likely find him watering plants or tooling around in his vegetable garden.
