When I was a senior in high school I had planned on graduating early but didn’t have enough credits. I had no afternoon classes my second semester so I enrolled in the work study program and got a job at a flower shop in town that had just opened. I answered the phones, ran deliveries and took care of the flowers. I fell in love! I moved to the Front Range shortly after graduating and got a job at a huge florist making loose wraps for grocery stores.
I moved back home after a year and a half and got a job as a delivery driver at one of our local florists. This job would decide my fate forever. My boss hired a contract worker to help with weddings; I quickly hit it off with her and discovered that she taught floral design at a local community college. She took me under her wing and started teaching me the art of floral design. I realized right away that when I created bouquets my heart sang with happiness. No matter what was happening in my life I felt free and joyful when doing my job.
I worked in different floral shops for the next 7 years before deciding to open my own. I observed the other florists operating in a certain way and had an idea that if things were done a little differently, they could be more successful.
The Enchanted Florist was born in the fall of 2006. It has been a beautiful and challenging road but I continue to feed my soul and heart with the art of floral. I find so much fulfillment in the joy and comfort that it brings to others. The Enchanted Florist is my passion and I will continue to bring life to loved ones’ occasions.
