Meet Our Staff

Fun and Informative Plant Shop Since 2004

Julie Schroer and Jodie Ramsay, the current owners of Jean’s, had been working for Jean and Dennis off and on during the growth of Jean’s the Right Plant Place. As the business grew, Julie and Jodie purchased it in 2004 to continue a fun and informative place to purchase and learn about plants for the community.

About The Owners

Julie and Jodie are both biology professors and enjoy their teaching in the non-gardening season. Both love teaching and present gardening classes at several horticulture events each year. They love biology, teaching and garden mastery with its many opportunities.

  • Julie Schroer- A biology professor for ten years at Bismarck State College-Bismarck, ND. Professor and advisor at NDSU in Fargo since 2008. Avid plant lover and manager of the greenhouse courses at Northern State University.
  • Jodie Ramsay- Biology professor at Northern State University, Aberdeen, SD.

Come in, meet our staff and ask us questions about your garden!

Our diverse staff includes students, teachers, retirees, and full-time (seasonal) workers. Some staff members work just through the potting season, while others are there from April through October (sometimes in snow and often in the cold!). Most of the staff have gardens of their own and have a lot of diverse and practical planting and gardening knowledge to share with you.
