After spending a career in the airline industry, I landed back at home to care for my Mom. Helping customers has always been something I excelled at and flowers feel like a great fit for me. You’ll find me out on the river in the summer or out on the pickle ball court.
Hi, I’m Debbi. A little bit about myself. Ever since I was little I loved creating with nature so it was only natural for me to become part of the floral industry growing up. I have been in the industry from the wholesale aspect to designing for large corporations to owning my own shop. With my husband, we moved to Gananoque. I was excited to find Magnolia which shared the same loves I have – whimsical garden designing, passion for nostalgia of old items, and quirky creative ways to put them together. I love working with these girls. They are working, creative, and fun loving.
I moved to Gananoque just over a year ago with the intention of getting involved in a small creative community with an abundance of natural beauty. I am a multi-media maker with a passion for colour, pattern, texture and form. After an early retirement from my award-winning design and corporate communications firm, I have been facilitating workshops and classes in yoga, creative expression and healing.
Working at Magnolia is a new adventure for me. I love being surrounded with the beautiful collections we carry and learning to work with floral design is a perfect fit. My care and concern for the environmental issues combined with a love of fashion led me to create Triptastica Eco Couture, an ever evolving up cycled clothing and accessory line which I sell at makers markets and on-line through Etsy.
Growing up I always had a passion for flowers, design and country living. I live on a farm with my husband and three small children raising heritage beef, chickens and horses. I love designing and flowers. I have many years experience working in floral design, flower shops and owning my own flower shop. I love our little community and live raising my children here!
