Pewaukee' s Flower Shop Manager


Luan always wanted to be an artist of some sort but thought that would be as an interior designer. While she earning her Bachelors degree in Interior Design, her father started his second career and opened a flower shop, JJ's Floral in Milwaukee. After college, Luan worked part-time with a local interior designer and full time in retail management and purchasing (as well as helping her dad for holidays). When her dad had an opportunity to open second location he asked Luan to run it for him. Even though she had no formal floral design training, she jumped at the chance. Her art and interiors background gave her the basics and she continued learning through design classes and seminars. 

After leaving JJ's Floral she worked at several other floral shops in the Milwaukee area, learning from other florists along the way. She joined Bank of Memories & Flowers-Pewaukee in July of 2012 and became manager that following April. She is thrilled with the chance to expand her knowledge of floral design and share that with her customers. 

As a florist, Luan feels her greatest privilege is helping her customers with lifes blessings and challenges, from birthdays and weddings to illnesses and funerals. "We use flowers to help convey peoples emotions and I love what I do. As the old saying goes, ' If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life'."
