Favorite memory from the shop: One of the first orders I filled and delivered was for Laughlin's, a local bakery. They were newly open and someone had smashed their window flower box, so an admirer wanted to send them fresh flowers. It was very fulfilling to design for another local business - we love their delicious contributions to the local flavor!
Favorite part about working at the shop: I appreciate Kim as a female small business owner who provides a supportive and flexible work environment. She is truly trying to be a responsible employer who is conscientious of fair business practices. And she's generous with the sushi!!
Favorite thing to do outside the shop: My hobbies have mostly taken a back seat to a rambunctious 4-year-old and creative teen, but I sneak in some juvenile fantasy fiction, bread baking, and critter catching as I can.
Dog person or cat person: I like both. we own cats but will likely end up with a doggie companion sooner than later.
Length of time at The Paper Daisy: Almost a year.
Favorite part of working at the shop: All the laughter. We all have very different personalities and were able to balance each other out.
Favorite part about working at the shop: I enjoy the creativity, and love to bring smiles to people’s faces through my arrangements.
Favorite season/event/flower type to design for: I love designing for weddings and designing with orchids.
Your superpower and your kryptonite: Invisibility would be my power, for sure, so I can go wherever I please. My kryptonite would be that my mouth goes faster than my brain sometimes.
Length of time at The Paper Daisy: Four years. Or rather, 28 for me. Time flies at The Paper Daisy!
Favorite part of working at the shop: Saying hi to all the people, especially the ones who bring me treats.
Favorite memory from the shop: This afternoon was pretty great.
Favorite thing to do outside the shop: I really like to walk and run, and I also like naps and food and smelling stuff.
Favorite food: Literally everything except dog food.
Dog person or cat person: Ugh, don’t get me started on dogs.
(Just kidding. Melvin only uses Snapchat.)
