{1} What is your floral industry background?  I attended Alfred State College to gain my Associates Degree in Floriculture Merchandizing.  I have been working in a floral shop since 1995.  During this time I have become an award winning designer, and have attended many floral conferences and exhibitions to keep up with the industry.

{2} How long have you worked at Rockcastle Florist?  12 years. 2 months.

{3} What is the most memorable order you have worked on at Rockcastle?  A funeral piece for a man that was an avid hunter and outdoorsman.  I have a personal connection to those interests and really understood what the family was look for even if they weren’t sure.

{4} What is your favorite flower?  To smell, freesia.  To garden, bachelor buttons or poppies.  To design with, hanging amaranthus.

{5} What inspired you in this industry?  Learning from other designers that push boundaries of traditional design and composition.  I love the calling of being resourceful and using unexpected elements.

{6} Tell us a random fact about yourself.  My family, my gardens, and my hobby farms are my happiness and muse.
