How has your membership in the Chapel Designers organization affected your business? Being a Chapel Designer has given me support and resources to move my business to a new level and attract the right clients. It has allowed me to build a network of floral friends who are supportive, encouraging and advocates for my business. At times this is a tough business and it is wonderful to have a supportive group of like minded individuals who understand how demanding and stressful our world can be at times.

What do you enjoy most about being a Chapel Designer? I love how supportive and sharing every single Chapel Designer is. If there is ever a doubt as to how to create or price an installation/arrangement or how to deal with any aspects of business, there is always someone available to answer a question or share their past experiences. It is also wonderful to be able to celebrate our craft while encouraging, supporting and assisting my peers.
