If you had told me 20 years ago that I would be playing with flowers for a living, I would have laughed. I can't count the number of buckets I washed or deliveries I made while working at a flower shop in high-school, preparing for my get away to college in Ohio. However, my art degree somehow landed me at a corporate job in a cubical, and I soon realized that it wasn't for me. After years at Chicago's iconic The New Leaf Flower Shop, I found a passion for weddings. This is a dream job, but it is work; more work than most can imagine. Creating beautiful concepts from start to finish for couples on their special day is simply amazing and worth all the effort! When I am not designing at ASA, I am raising my 5 and 7 year old sons.
