My Story

“I must have flowers, always, and always”
- Claude Monet

I wish I could say I grew up with a garden like Monet’s in Giverny or had a family of natural green thumbs, but that’s just not my story. I have an unusual path to floral design.

A degree in finance led me to the world of investment management for over 10 years both in New York and Washington, D.C. While that career was exciting, there was always something missing. CREATIVITY! My artistic and creative side was yearning for something more fullfilling. Creating the concept for my own wedding flowers ignited my passion for exquisite floral design.

My introduction to the world of floral design began in 2009 as a freelance designer working in the Maryland, Virginia and D.C. area. I trained under some of the area’s most talented designers and I continue to admire them as artists and successful business people. I studied basic floral design both locally and at the New York School of Floral Design. The focus of my work is in weddings and special events. Flowers have long been a part of many of life’s most celebrated moments and I am truly honored that I can help contribute to making those moments beautiful for others.
