The Dirt on Watters’ Women in Business. Doreen, Mckenzie, Lisa and Amy.
THE DIRT on Doreen Storz: bookkeeper/accountant. Beach camper, crafter, glue-gunslinger. Book balancer, number cruncher and money manager, the wizard behind the back-office curtain. Aerobics instructor, RV traveler, Maltese rescuer, jewelry maker, community volunteer.
THE DIRT on Lisa Watters-Lain: owner/general manager. Mother, grandmother, dog lover. Frequent loser of garden gloves, fierce community supporter and family touchstone. Hiker, traveler and plant professional with a lifetime of experience. Nursery ninja and master manicotti maker. Veritable vault of Star Trek knowledge.
THE DIRT on Amy Langley: manager/ buyer. Word wizard, team leader. The fiery force behind merchandising, marketing and motivation. Rose wrangler, bug battler and Halloween decorator. Expert tree hugger and devoted dog mom. Adores outdoors, sci fi, DIY and sarcasm.
THE DIRT on McKenzie Lain: owner/manager. Like her mother before her, Lisa Watters-Lain, she has garden experience in her blood as the third generation of her family to carry on the Watters legacy. McKenzie says she is thrilled to be following in the footsteps of her parents and grandparents, taking the garden center to the next level under her ownership.
Like her mother before, McKenzie began her love with gardening as a cashier and watering plants after school. Education became her primary focus after high school, and she received a degree from Fresno Pacific University in psychology and a master’s degree in marriage and family counseling from Fuller Theological Seminary.
She’s passionate about making sure Watters Garden Center continues to be a significant part of Prescott, providing jobs and educating local gardeners on the best landscape practices. She has spearheaded the only Rare and Exotic Tropical Houseplant selection in Northern Arizona, searching for plants from the jungles of South America to Southeast Asia.
While supporting local organizations like Prescott Area Young Professionals and the Prescott Chamber of Commerce, McKenzie loves running through the garden center with her Mini-Schnauzers, playing pick-up basketball and hiking local trails.
