Company description…

Flowers & Bread is an educational lifestyle brand focused on ancient traditions that temper the business of our modern lives. Our brick and mortar space combines a woodfired hearth, bread studio, floral studio and charming bakery. We offer workshops, team-building and private events. F&B also creates unique gifts and travel experiences.

I started my company because…

I wanted to add beauty to the world and create a space full of celebration, connection and learning opportunities. My hope was that F&B would be a place where customers could escape the digital demands of today, connect to one another over good coffee and bread and connect to themselves through hands-on learning.

The impact I want my company to have on the world…

I want F&B to provide a learning space where customers can connect to their own histories—whether it is remembering the flowers their grandfather used to grow or understanding why their aunt used vinegar in her pie crust. So many of our personal family narratives are tied up in the traditions we teach and the best moments are when customers rediscover those parts of themselves. My hope is that F&B can inspire such moments of self-discovery in a broader audience and that those discoveries will add meaning to personal narratives.

Top 3 goals for my business are…

  1. Build a premiere platform for online gifting and workshops that brings the in-house F&B experience to our internet audience.
  2. Ensure a successful floral farm and floral studio growth.
  3. Provide my employees with work that supports their long-term personal and professional growth with a healthy income.

Women entrepreneurs are…

World-builders and storytellers.

I #EmbraceAmbition because…

The surest way to fail is to never try at all.
