Kathy began her journey into the floral business after taking a floral design class in the 1980's and discovering it was something she really enjoyed. She soon decided to open the doors of her first florist business in 1988 operating out of her home. Her custom designs and artistic vision soon made Kathy the 'go to' floral designer in the area and her 'home' operated business soon outgrew it's location...causing her to move to a new location in Humboldt. The new retail location was located on East End Drive, then grew even larger and moved to a Central Avenue location, where it remained and flourished for 5 years.
Kathy said, “Due to some issues unrelated to the business, I took a break and went to work in the public for a few years...soon realizing how much I missed the work, the artisty, and the people. So, in 2006, I decided it was time to open the doors again and purchased City Florist on Main Street in Humboldt, renaming it Kathy’s Flowers and Gifts. The smiles I can put on my client's faces are a huge reward and daily motivation for doing this and I love what I do. Whether it is their saddest day or their happiest day, I feel I have helped bring a little piece of joy into people’s lives.”
She continued, “I look forward to meeting the needs and making many more smiles in the years to come.”
