Growing up as a child in Jakarta, Indonesia, Weina was always charmed by plants and animals. She earned her BFA in graphic design from USF and volunteered for non-profit organizations around sustainability for their outreach programs. She enjoys helping people coming up with creative botanical solutions for small outdoor spaces using native plants to create green corridors in the Portland urban landscape. She joined the Backyard Habitat team in May 2022 and her backyard was Gold certified in 2019. During her leisure time, she enjoys gardening, visiting all native nurseries, hiking, bird-watching, playing pickleball, wiffle ball, tennis, soccer, and singing with her all female acapella group, DameNation.
