Meet Our Team » Marlene Perez
I've been with Prides Corner Farms since 2020. I had no prior knowledge of plants when I began working at Prides as an order processor. I chose to take up my position as a sales representative after working as an order processor for two years. Since I began working as a sales representative, my capacity to connect with customers has significantly increased. I enjoy the thrill of the hunt, the skill of negotiating, and the sense of accomplishment that comes with it.
I was born and raised in the state of California and shortly before turning 21 I moved to the state of Connecticut. One of the hardest things I ever had to do was leave my hometown. Connecticut proved to be an entirely new experience for me.
In our spare time, my husband and I enjoy making side trips to Mexico, where we take pleasure in visiting a variety of tourist attractions and spending time with both of our families' sides. We had a terrific time on our most recent trip, which took us to Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo, Mexico.
Marlene's Favorite PlantWith so many trees, shrubs, and perennials to choose from, it's impossible to pick just one favorite plant. A butterfly bush would be my preferred plant choice because it requires little maintenance, blooms from summer into fall, and draws butterflies and hummingbirds. What's not to love?
