Debi McGlinn has been in the floral industry for 40 years. She took her first job working in a flower shop at the age of 16, followed by design and management classes.
“Before managing a flower shop I would freelance design on occasions. I remember meeting a bride who had little money and had recently lost her mom,” she recalled recently. “With a heavy heart, I designed all of her flowers, trying to make her wedding as beautiful as she could have possibly imagined. Guests at the wedding saw my work and started calling me to design their weddings.”
