We are always striving towards continuing education. I (Karen-5 years experience) and one of my colleagues Kasia (11 years experience) will be furthering our professional development. We will spend the next year in preparation to take our Professional Florist Designer Evaluation at the next American Institute of Floral Design (AIFD) Symposium in July 2011 in San Fransisco. Wish us luck! We will join the many working/studying/parents out there that we so admire. We will keep you posted on our learning curve.
