Meadow Brook Design, American Fork
BORN: Salt Lake City
TITLE: President + Owner
The grass is certainly greener at Meadow Brook Design — thanks to the leadership of Ginger Belnap. The landscape designer started her company 10 years ago and has made a mark with her eye for detail, creative thinking, and ability to design “mini-Disneylands” on Utah Valley’s residential acres.
The WHITE Talking “I’m a democratic leader who collaborates and values input from others to facilitate in the success of the company.”
First Job “Growing up I had a variety of businesses I shared with my older brothers. We started selling snow cones to kids when I was 8 years old. We graduated from snow cones to sharing a paper route, mowing lawns together, growing pumpkins and raising turkeys to sell until I was 15. At that point, I got my first job outside of the family ventures making hand-tossed pizzas at the Pizza Factory.”
Tackling Disagreements “I go for a run. I use running as a tool to diffuse my negative emotions and think through problems.”
Youthful Advice “Set goals and work with integrity to accomplish them. Be willing to dream, take risks, have the tenacity to create your own future and enjoy doing it.”
