Team Members

Our Team Members come to us through local high school Transition Programs or similar types of work programs, as well as independently.  Most team members have job coaches such as teachers, peers or parents/family members.  As school program students graduate, some remain at We Grow Dreams and have even gone on to become staff at the greenhouse.  Many others move on to other jobs within our communities.

Cole Bransford

Cole is recently back with us after a year at home due to Covid 19. Cole comes to us independently with an aide, but was formerly introduced to us through Soaring Eagle Academy in Glen Ellyn.  It’s so nice to have him back with us.

Brian Doppelt

Brian has been coming to WGD for over 10 years with his mom, Barb.  He is generally in charge of making sure we have enough boxes built for our customers, but likes to work off-site sales in the spring and fall.  We can depend on Brian and Barb to be willing to do anything that needs to be done.


Eric Hum

One of the early team members, Eric has been coming to the greenhouse for 15 years! He is our resident specialist in concrete mixing, pot making and paper crafts!  You might even find him working the register on some days.

Andrew MacLennan

Andrew has been with We Grow for many years and is our ‘clean and scrub’ guy.  His favorite name for everyone is “Trouble” and has an infectious laugh.  Ask him about hockey — he loves the sport!


Billy Yoakam

Billy has been here from the start when he was just a teenager!  His big smiles and generous hugs are always welcome.  Billy has grown so much in his abilities since he first starting coming with his mom.
