Hello! I started in this crazy industry way back in 1982 processing flowers. After years of working my way up the ladder to sales, I am now the cut flower manager here at Frank Adams. I love this position as it allows me to share my experiences and knowledge with some younger, eager; up and coming sales people. I have always loved working with flowers and the people that surround them. I am truly blessed to have had this opportunity in my life and look forward to helping Frank Adams provide the best service and product available to our customers! My favorite flower would be the passion flower…an over, intricate blast from Mother Nature for sure!
My name is Rori. I've been here at Frank Adams for a year to the day almost. I am a true oregonian because I love roses so I must be in the City of Roses for a reason! They are my favorite, I love every color every shape every style! I also love protea's they give this little shop of horrors vibe! As far as hobbies I'll try anything twice! I love live concerts, plays, bike riding, walking, photography, painting, drawing, poetry, and playing games like taboo! That's my all time favorite if you wanna play let me know!
I started at Frank Adams August of 2014 as the cashier. I really love the customer interaction of that position. I met many wonderful folks. I left for greener grass and found out that the grass is not greener. I returned to Frank Adams as our supply buyers assistant. What do I love about this job? Just about everything. There are challenges and successes every day. I still get to work closely with our wonderful customers. And who does not want to work around pretty things and amazing people.
My favorite flower…….. has to be Sweet Peas, the scent and delicacy always make me smile. They remind me of my grandparents, they grew them every year and would always send me home with a bunch.
Favorite Flower: Sunflower I’ve worked in the floral industry for over 20 years and enjoy the people but especially the flowers. In my free time I love walking my 125lb German Shepard, and cooking.
Accounting / Office Manager
I’m a recent transplant to Portland and fortunate enough to have become a part of the Frank Adams Family. I started as a flower processor and have advanced my way to lead cashier. A position I adore. My coworkers are so caring and took me in with open arms; the customers are amazing as well! I am a mother of two awesome children and I am excited to be living in and exploring all the PNW has to offer. In my free time I enjoy reading and hanging out with my family. My favorite flowers are Antique roses.
Hey, I’m Brandi! I moved from the California Bay Area to the Pacific Northwest in 2019 and couldn’t be more excited to join the Frank Adams family. I’ve been in the floral industry since 2016 while studying Interior Design & Business. I would say my favorite thing about this industry is that there is always something new to learn whether it be a flower, a plant, a trend, you name it! Outside of work, some of my favorite things to do are drive to cities I’ve never been to, sunset bonfires on the beach and exploring the beauty of Oregon. I could tell you what my favorite flower is but it will change every time I’m asked.. I appreciate the beauty of them all!
You can find me at the sales counter closest to the entrance. I can’t wait to meet you!
“I’m a newbie in the Frank Adams wholesale world but not to the flower world. I’ve always loved working with flowers and I’d like to believe its my calling in life. I’ve worked in the flower world for over 6+ years now and have only continued to flourish with every new experience. My favorite flower has to be Dahlias, but wild and peculiar flowers always amaze me. When I first stepped into the flower market, I felt like a kid at a candy store. So many new and exciting experiences are awaiting me here and I’m honored to be a part of such an amazing team. Fun fact about me, I speak Spanish!”
Hi! Sean here. Hailing from the East Coast, but comfortably settled in the Pacific Northwest, I’ve spent the last few years working in the floral industry and am thrilled to be a part of Frank Adams. The flowers are terrific to be around, but the people I work with make the experience even better. As for my favorite flower, at this moment I’ll say Columbine (they look like starships!) Ask me later and I’ll likely have a different answer. I spend most of my free time running the trails in Forest Park and biking across the city, but also love to sit and read at various parks in my neighborhood.
Hi, my name is Brianna or you can call me Bri. When I was in high school, I was the manager of our floral store and got lots of training and education on floristry. Every year only three students from the high school got chosen to compete in a floral competition held at Frank Adams. I was chosen by my teacher to do it two years in a row. When I was at those competitions, I always said it would be my dream job to work at Frank Adams. I loved it at Frank Adams. My dream came true and I am so happy to work here now as a cut flower specialist. I love talking to customers about the varieties of flowers we have and to answer all of their questions. My current favorite flower is Dahlias I've always love the variety of beautiful colors and different unique styles they come in. I also have past experience doing floral arrangements for weddings, proms, funerals and a lot of just "because" bouquets. On my free time, I love spending time with my rescue Persian kitten from Kuwait, doing floral arrangements, painting, and I enjoy being in the outdoors and on the water on my paddle board enjoying nature. Please call me if you want to talk flowers. I would love to work with you on your floral orders.
Hi! I’m Kimber, Frank Adams newest cut flower specialist! I am originally from Las Vegas but I made the move to Portland in 2017 and I absolutely love it here. I have been in the floral industry as a designer since 2008 (13 years and counting), and I’m eager to get to know the wholesale side of things. I have a lot of favorite flowers, too many to name, but any kind of protea has my heart! In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends, kayaking, nature walks, discovering beautiful garden centers & nurseries, and snuggling with my fur babies, Teagan & Rusty. I am so excited to join the Frank Adams family and I look forward to meeting you!
Flowers have always gave me a levity to life. Having worked in the industry for a few years now, I appreciate the connections I’ve made along the way. When I’m not dishing out flowers, I enjoy my time outside, with family, and at my jiu jitsu gym. Come see me for your floral needs!

Favorite Flower: Carnation. I’ve been working in the flower industry since 2004. Mostly delivering flowers all over Oregon & Washington but also helping out on the ground floor. I love connecting with people and creating relationships with co-workers and customers. Always looking for an opportunity to help out. On my weekends I hike, lift weights, snowboard and enjoy time with friends & family. Find me and you’ll find a hug!
Hi I’m Simone ! I’ve always loved flowers and being around them. I used to accompany my mom to the floral shop she used to work at back when I was a little kid. She would always let me take some of the flowers she didn’t use, so I could make my own little arrangements. I love going to lavender festivals, the wooden shoe tulip festival, pretty much any flower festival! I’m happiest when I’m around flowers! If I could pick a favorite flower, it would be sunflowers.

Hola! My name is Jorge I love to travel, dance, and enjoy life every day! You can often find me in the warehouse cutting flowers and cracking jokes with my coworkers.

I have worked in the floral industry for over 20 years in both retail and wholesale. As Accounts Payable for Frank Adams Wholesale, this knowledge has helped decipher the hundreds of invoices that I process every week. Owning an older home, repairs and maintenance are always high priority and seem to be never ending. My favorite flower? The white oriental lily, both classic and elegant.
