  • why she decided to rebrand her business
  • how she successfully transitioned from a rental company to a full experience floral & event design company
  • why she chose to study under individual floral artists rather than attending a floral design program in a traditional college setting
  • the part-time seasonal staff she refers to as her “floral fairies”
  • her insights into planning and executing floral and event design for destination weddings
  • her #1 tool for connecting with wedding planners and fostering relationships that bring opportunities for collaboration her way
