Jenny Thomasson AIFD CFD, Design Director & Principal, is an award winning wedding florist and has been in the floral industry for 15 years. I have studied with some of the most trend setting floral designers in the industry today and love to get new ideas, new techniques, new product and make things that stand above and beyond the norm. I really like to work with people that enjoy the process of planning a wedding, if you do and you want someone that enjoys it too, it’s me. As I say to all of my girls, and my husband Joe, WE ROCK! I have been the driving force of Stems since the first day of business and the point of communication for all of Stems’ brides and grooms, designing well over 1000 weddings over the past 11 years. In 2011 I was inducted into a very prestigious group of international floral designers, AIFD, and I am a member of the Society of America Florists and the President of the Lewis & Clark division of Teleflora. MY interests include fashion, spinning & the gym (I love it), fine art, photography and being a mom.
Joe Thomasson, Shop Manager, AKA Manager Dude, has spent much of his career in retail and retail management. Joe is an outstanding project and logistic manager and is responsible for all of Stems operations. His interest include spinning & the gym, anything book related (you should see the library!), outdoor activities and being a Dad.
Kim Brannan, Marketing Director & Principal, has been in commercial interior design for over 23 years and has worked on the development of Stems with Jenny & Joe for the past 11 years. Her interests include anything wedding… she is a little obsessed, anything crafty, marketing and gardening.
