Floral Design Instructor
It was serendipity that brought me to this place of floral passion. While looking for a career to match my degree in Journalism/Public Relations, I found a knack for event planning and styling instead; although, my journey did not stop there. After a couple of years of growing my event business, my clients began requesting for flowers but also keeping within budget. It was a tough challenge considering I knew absolutely nothing about flowers; however, I managed to pull off a few mildly impressive basic designs. Paired with my love for fresh flowers and a curiosity to learn the basic mechanics of floral designing, I began to research floral classes and thus enrolled into the floral program at Long Beach City College. During and after completing the full course requirements, my passion grew intensely along with my creative talents. Since my journey started, I’ve competed in competitions and have won awards for my designs. What continues to inspire me is the idea that floral designing is limitless. By use of unique materials and blossoms paired with design style and techniques can really bring life to a space and bring smiles to people’s faces. When I’m not immersed in floral designing, I love to travel and seek inspiration from the various places I visit.
