She’s the one who brings experience, humor and organization to our tribe. Our lead floral designer + floral production manager Julie is one of those true “behind the scenes” people who doesn’t necessarily enjoy having her picture taken, but is always up for a sassy or quick-witted comment. And she’s insanely funny. She’s the Mama Bear of Team Orange  – making sure the chaotic back room of our design studio is always in the best shape possible (thank goodness) and always stepping up to make sure we succeed as a team. Julie also has YEARS of floral design experience, making her strong with the mechanics and teaching the art of design. She leads most of our Wine+Design workshops and is so darn good at helping others make their work pretty. Everyone needs a “Julie” on their team!
