Maureen Sullivan

After successfully owning Thomas Hobbs Florist for 22 years, Maureen carefully decided to sell the shop. With her desire to share her passion and knowledge of flowers she decided to open the flower school along with her sister Kathleen 10 years ago. That is where Maureen now wants to concentrate her time, adding some new exciting classes with varying schedules.

With a diverse background and over two decades in the floral industry Kathleen has a keen eye for design and a uniquely skilled innovative mindset.
