I grew up with my hands in the dirt, as my family has a line of talented gardeners and green thumbs, but it wasn’t until I moved to the high country for school that I began to appreciate the seasons and start a garden of my own. My mother and grandmother taught me how to grow everything from potatoes to dinner plate dahlias and since then, my curiosity and awe of the plant world has only flourished. I have traveled far and wide to learn more about growing food and flowers. In just the past few years, I have spent many months traveling and working on all types of farms throughout the US and Europe.
As for my flower journey, I can thank Janna, owner of Callista Designs, for taking me under her wing and teaching me her immense knowledge of floral design. It is with a passion for growing and an artful mind that I find myself excited and extremely lucky to work in such a fun occupation and beautiful environment.
I have called the Boone area my home for eight years now and am happy with the many activities it has to offer. When I’m not in the flower shop or my garden, you might find me hiking, baking, or taking a yoga class.
