Wife. Mom. Boss. I married my high school crush, Josh in 2014. April 2015, our first child Ava was born, and in December 2017 our second, Owen was born. My little family is my greatest blessing in life, but I am very thankful for loving what I do as a career. I developed passion for flowers early on from arranging farm bouquets since I was 11 years old. Upon graduating with a bachelors in business management from Western Michigan University in 2012, I had the privilege to work at a flower shop in St. Joseph, MI. After a year of learning the business, I started my own business named ``Flowers by Anna`` out of our home. It was great to not have the overhead that most businesses have, but then I found myself growing from 13 weddings out of our home, to 56 weddings. It was time to move my business out of our home and into a storefront. April 1, 2016 Flowers by Anna storefront was established. I am very grateful that my path has lead me to where I am today. I love my business and my customers, and love coming home to my beautiful family. Life is good.``
“Fun. Loving. Patient. These words often describe me and my style. I worked at a flower shop throughout high school and returned to the industry when I met Anna and we were creating wedding dreams through flowers in her kitchen! I am truly blessed to be in an industry where I can utilize my skills of creating unique floral designs for everyday enjoyment. Seeing a brides face light up after catching a glimpse of her bouquet for the first time is a treasure all on its own!! My desire is to help our guests find the unique gift they’re looking for whether it’s one of our many offerings throughout the gift shop or is found in a beautiful fresh floral arrangement.
What I love...
Being a part of each wedding continually reminds me of how blessed I am to celebrate 26 years of marriage with the love of my life! We have 3 adult children that have been a treasure to watch become successful in their own lives!
Being a stay-at-home mom of 3 children made me a very patient person. That patience is a blessing to the meticulous designs and attention to detail that goes into each of our arrangements and each of our events. I love that each of our guests has their own unique style - one that is brought out through the floral designs I get to create!”
