I have been fortunate enough to work in the floral industry for over 25 years, cultivating a life out of the passion and joy flowers bring. I am thrilled to be part of this amazing team of people who care so deeply about our customers, and each other. It truly is a work/family. Along with my love of flowers, I enjoy cooking for the people in my life. My husband and I produce our own cooking show on YouTube (CookingForTwo101) which began as a tool to teach my kids how to recreate the flavors of their childhood and has become a great way to pass on our family traditions for generations to come! I savor every moment I get to spend with my three amazing kids who have grown up to become thoughtful, kind, caring adults. I am so proud of them! And for a little drama and excitement, I am raising a two-year-old velociraptor, I mean German Shephard, named Blue, who keeps me on my toes!

Hello there! My name is Aja. I have been working here at Frank Adams Wholesale Florist for about 5 years now. I am the new Cut Flowers Manager, and I enjoy coming to work every day and helping all our wonderful florists fill their orders. It is so fun to see how different each florist is with how they design and all so beautiful! My favorite flower is Gardenia, I think they are so pretty and smell so good! When I’m not here I’m at home with my 10-year-old son playing games and doing puzzles, that is one of our favorite things to do.

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.

I have been with Frank Adams for seven years, five of those years as the Office Manager/HR/Payroll person. I think all flowers are beautiful, but Swan Island Dahlias always amaze me with their beauty, so many varieties and colors! When I'm not at work, I enjoy hanging out with my adorable little dog Hazel, spending time with my family and dining out with my friends.

As a sales assistant at FA and I spend my time talking with customers in both English and Spanish, helping with orders and being creative with flowers. My favorite flowers are the Rose Lily because they look beautiful, Peonies because of their fullness and Anemones because of how quickly they open, and of course all the roses. My dream is to own a home with a big rose garden. When I'm not playing with flowers I am painting and/or drawing, or you may catch me at Barnes and Nobles, reading. I also love to go shopping and to eat out.

I have worked in the floral industry for over 30 years, 26 of them at Frank Adams. 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.
