2017 Retail Florist of the Year

If Lori Haveman had followed her mother’s original advice, the only flowers she would see every day would be as a nurse when she entered a patient’s room. “My mother believed all women should become nurses to ensure job security, but she also wanted all four of her daughters to work in a flower shop so they would learn about the finer things in life,” Lori shares.

One of the finer things for Lori includes winning the 2017 Retail Florist of the Year award, a prestigious industry contest cosponsored by Florists’ Review and Wholesale Florist & Florist Supplier Association (WF&FSA).
