How Rosewood Started

My story began as the little girl who simply couldn't get enough shades of crayons and never had enough time (or money) in any type of craft, floral, or paper store. I was that child who had to have all my art supplies out at one time to see ALL the possibilities I could create and I wouldn’t settle till I had found perfection…no matter how many hours that took. 

College is that time in life where you are encouraged to make responsible, risk-free decisions about what you're supposed to major in. So I majored in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Physical Therapy and graduated from The Master’s College in Los Angeles, CA with my Bachelor’s in Kinesiology. Inside though, I knew something wasn't right - my favorite part of college was a photography elective class I took one semester. Feeling lost, I left LA with the knowledge that I had one life to live and that I needed pursue what I had loved as a child. 

I spent the next five years as a manager and merchandising designer for Hobby Lobby. Everyday, I spent between 8-15 hours immersed in every medium of home decor, wall art, and florals, creating displays to attract every style and customer. People would stop to ask me how I did what I did, my district manager sent me to teach other stores how to do what I did, and I was ultimately transferred to Pittsburgh, PA to help a large, struggling store that had so much potential. Two years later, that store climbed from 3 to 5 million+ in sales and became the district standard for visual displays.
In my final year at Hobby Lobby, I stepped down to open my own business making all the things that people couldn’t find but asked for daily. Rosewood Boutique was born because of my equal love for all things floral and wood. I knew I couldn't just settle for one and wanted a beautiful name to reflect both of those loves.
