MEET THE TEAM
Julie launched The Flower Consultant in 2009. Her extensive knowledge was born from her hands on experience of floristry techniques in several local florists, as well as holding a National Certificate in floristry from Bicton College, and a Diploma in Professional Interior Design from the National Design Academy. These qualifications back up her natural ability to inspire others, and create breathtaking designs for any occasion.
In her spare time Julie enjoys shopping and lunch out with friends, skiing holidays with her husband Graham, and enjoying time with her dog Barney.
Rachel joined in the summer of 2013 while she was studying floristry at Bicton College receiving a distinction to go along with her natural flair for floral design. Rachel manages the day to day running of the shop and has a great knowledge of the ever changing styles and is always keen to expand her skills with learning new techniques. She is very competent and professional with managing all aspects of the shop while Julie is jet setting!
In her spare time Rachel likes to spend time with her son Harry and enjoys long distance running, completing the London Marathon in 2016.
Millie joined the team at the end of 2015 and is currently undertaking a City and Guilds Diploma in Floristry. She has a natural flair for flower arranging and shop dressing, ensuring our shop looks its best at all times.
In her spare time Millie likes catching up with friends, watching the Exeter Chiefs and enjoys riding her horse Merlin.
Sylvie joined in 2015 alongside working in Angel's a clothing boutique in Okehampton. She is exceptionally good with keeping our customers happy and catering for their every need.
In her spare time Sylvie enjoys spending time with her husband Kevin. She also enjoys expanding her skills and has done many courses in her local area. She also keeps us going with her lovely soup.
Poppy joined us in 2016 replacing her sister Daisy who had been with us since the early days. Poppy is currently undertaking her final year at Okehampton College with the hope of going on to study dance.
In her spare she loves to dance, catch up with her friends and has recently been accepted to pursue her career in dance and theatre at the Jason Thomas Performing Arts Collage. We look forward to seeing one of her performances in the future.
Barney has a varied role in the shop. Some days he's security, some days he's a counselor, and some days he's the shop clown. Either way we like having him around.
In his spare time Barney enjoys hunting out snacks, jumping in muddy rivers and posing for photos.
