Q) How did you to get involved in the floral industry, and how did you end up owning Allan’s Flowers?
A) I went to work in a flower shop in Boston where my sister was working as a designer. I was hired to sweep, clean, etc. I moved to Prescott, Ariz. in 1989 and applied at the shops in town. I was hired at Allan’s for deliveries and basic shop help and eventually graduated to a designer. When the owner was looking to sell her shop I jumped at the chance, and in 1999 I bought the shop.
