I am a native of Colorado Springs from the Ivy wild area and wow… the city was much smaller then! I’m a graduate of Palmer High School, class of 1973!
I started working at JC Penney in 1976 doing clothes displays and worked in several other departments to include hostessing in their famous little coffee shop.
In 1979 I started at the Broadmoor Florist and Gift Shop. I didn’t know I had a creative bone in my body… I started doing some window displays and silk flower designing. Then I was asked to try my hand in being a full time floral designer. I loved it, and have been doing this for 30 years now! I met Rich at the Broadmoor Florist 27 years ago, as we were both floral designers. I also met my husband at the Broadmoor and married Carl in 1990.
In 1998 I started working at Rich Designs. It is such a beautiful shop and environment to work in. It continues to grow and change in new directions. It is such a blessing to work here and I do enjoy making beautiful flower designs for customers and friends!
