My career in the floral industry began in New Iberia, La. I started at the bottom; sweeping, cleaning coolers, and delivery. I soon found a passion for floral design. After a move to Jackson, Ms. my career as a designer began to take flight. I have been fortunate enough to have studied with many AIFD Designers and industry leaders who have shaped who I am today. In 2008 and again in 2012, I was named Designer of the Year by the Mississippi State Florists Association. I then went on to compete in the prestigious Mid America Cup where I placed 1st in bridal, 1st in event, and 1st runner up overall. I bring over 25 years of experience in every aspect of the floral industry, and have taught seminars sponsored by industry leaders, and local vendors. my work has also been published in numerous publications. I have served on the board of directors for both Mississippi State and Central Allied ( a subsidiary of Mississippi state)Florist Associations as well as serving as president of Central Allied. I am currently a member of the Louisiana State Florist Association and a resident of the Bywater Neighborhood in New Orleans, La.
