When I started Ever After at the young age of 19 I knew that one thing would always be present in my work, passion. As a child of immigrant parents I understood that an opportunity like mine to start a business was a luxury. With a desire to show my parents their hard work did not go unnoticed I effectively ran a local flower shop servicing thousands of wire orders for 1-800-Flowers, Teleflora and FTD. In 2012 we began to focus heavily on our event division. Successfully, we have completed over 500 events to date. I take pride in our tireless efforts to grow Ever After into the shop it has become. 

On a personal note: My background is in ballet. I believe the fluid movements inspire my organic flower arrangements. I am also the wife of a highly successful marketing professional. The apple of my eye is my Ava whom has enriched my life in such a tremendous way.

After wrapping up my studies at the University of Miami with a background in the public health sector, diving into day to day routines helping patients feel better always left me feeling like something was missing. Although I loved aiding patients through their wellness path, my profession lacked creativity. As a kid I loved crafts, creating and styling as long as it involved construction paper, rhinestones and a glue gun I was in heaven! I always toyed with the idea of getting involved in the event industry. Helping family and friends put together great parties, always lead to remarks like: "you should do this for a living". After some thought I began interning as a florist for Ever After. Helen of Ever After is a wonderful florist and teacher with an exuberant passion and love for her craft. After interning for a couple months I was hooked! My background truly helped me prepare for the interactions I would have with our clients.  Now I not only bring joy to our clients as I did with patients, I have the opportunity to go on a journey with them as we prepare for their most memorable events. 

On a personal note: With the support of loved ones, my family has truly motivated me to work hard and pour my heart into a career that fulfills me, which I have found in Ever After. Newly wedded to my best friend and better half, I'm a very proud wife to a hard working and successful Physical Therapist. We hope to start our own family soon, for now we have our fur baby, Charlie, who is a fur ball of love.
