Sarah's Flowers
2003-2014

After fourteen years in the trade, I am hanging up the towel on floral work for special occasions. Even though I am not designing now, I did want to showcase some of my work within my portfolio. Having the ability to work weddings and large events allows me to feature some of my best skills: detail oriented, fresh designs, creativity, management, stress-management, and follow-through. 

I have had amazing opportunities to work with some wonderful brides. I am thankful that floral design was my creative outlet while I worked with coffee and attended school.

Snohomish Flower Company
2000-2003

I began sweeping floors and answering phones for a highschool job. Next, I became a Designer and Manager.

  • Produced schedules for designers, customer representatives, and drivers.
  • Used QuickBooks to track purchase orders, write checks, and manage income/expense reports.
  • Processed bank deposits and payroll using tax tables and QuickBooks.
  • Maintained excellent relationships with wholesalers and suppliers.
  • Managed employee performance and production.
  • Worked directly with funeral and wedding customers and fulfilled their orders.

When the company sold (owners retired), I moved to Starbucks and also began Sarah's Flowers.
