I truly believe quality stems from the fusion of passion and creativity. My life-long love affair with flowers came to a head as the company I worked for closed down and I was forced to re-evaluate my life. Having achieved success in my current career path, it was only natural to go through the motions of assembling an up-to-date resume and perusing the usual sites. However, my job searches often drifted into hours of researching the world of flowers and their role in life’s most important occasions.

As an avid lover of the little things in life, I became an advocate for adding beautiful and fitting arrangements to every possible occasion.

My living room soon became the studio, and I created unique arrangements for my friends and family at every opportunity. I must give kudos to my fiancé as he was the first one to genuinely encourage me to pursue this passion and turn a hobby into a thriving venture. I’ve never shied away from a challenge and was not about to start now. My very talented friend put together this fantastic website and I started planning.

My vision for Petals and Stems is to get people excited about flowers.

I look forward to continuing my relationships with local Growers to offer a little homegrown love to my clients. Remaining in a constant state of learning helps me stay informed of trends and pairings and I have built a broad portfolio of both pre-arranged and bespoke options. My consultations are meant to empower and educate clients, helping them to create an unforgettable arrangement.
