What do you love about your job?
I love the variety of my job! We work with beautiful flowers, plants and containers. We're always meeting new people either in person, on the phone or when we deliver to someone's home or business. We are constantly learning about new products and techniques. It is always interesting, you never know what the next day will bring.
What or who inspired you to start your own business?
I grew up in the floral business. My mother opened her retail store when I was seven, so I knew what the holidays were about for a florist. There are a lot of changes that have taken place since then, and like in any business, you have to change with the times. I constantly keep my eyes and ears open to new changes, how they will affect the business and how we can stand out in a "crowd." Our top priority in our business is customer service!
Describe your most memorable project.
I would like to say, one of the many glamorous weddings or events is memorable. But, to be honest, the funeral work is what touches my heart. I try to reflect the feeling of the sender in the work we send out. This is a very important time of the family and friends. We do our best to convey their emotions with the flowers they order.
