Meet lovely Lauren. Lauren started with us in 2019. Her mom is our downtown manager, Tammy, so we've been a part of Lauren's life pretty much forever! Lauren is currently in grade 10 and works with us just a few hours a week while she's focusing on her education.
We love having Lauren working on our team with us. She is a hard worker and willing to learn anything! She's got a fun personality, a great sense of humour, is one tough cookie and is easy to work with. She's got a natural eye for design and is very coachable. We love watching her learn and grow in the shops and can't wait to see her develop her skills as a florist.
Lauren came to work with us because she saw what her mom did for work and thought she'd like to do it too...kind of following in mom's footsteps! Her favourite things about working in the flower shop are taking care of plants and flowers, and setting up the shop in the mornings. She loves the satisfaction of making the shop look clean and pretty and is really happy with how much she's learned about taking care of plants in her time with us.
When Lauren isn't at school and working she can be found working hard at cheerleading, spending time with her family and friends, and getting lots of love from her cats, dogs and chickens.
Lauren's advice to those hoping to work in the flower shop is to have fun and to listen carefully because there's a whole lot to learn around here!
