Well, if you have ever called White House Florist or stopped in, chances are you have talked to Janie! She has been with White House Florist from day one and we are so thankful for that! She is our customer service manager and the head buyer for our gift shop! She also consults with brides for Weddings by Jennifer from time to time and also helps us with many of the other behind the scenes tasks it takes to run a business! She and her husband Mike have been married 41 years (see this post about their wedding). They have 4 grown children who are all married and they have 5 wonderful grandchildren – Kristen, Jeffrey, Abbey, Henry & Amelia!
After being a kindergarten teacher and then a homemaker for many years, she began her career in the floral industry the day her daughter Jennifer asked her to help her open a flower shop in early 2000! Wow, she had no idea what she was signing up for! She has been a great asset for White House Florist with her superb customer service and marketing skills, all while learning about the flower business over the last 12 years. She has enjoyed getting to know our customers over the years and is thrilled to help them select just the right flowers and gifts to celebrate the special moments in their lives. She has also established relationships with many wholesale vendors & suppliers across the country so that we can provide the best gifts and home decor items for our customers to choose from!
We hope you have enjoyed getting to know a little more about Janie! She hopes you will be calling or stopping by soon!
