After spending 22 years in banking with roles in internal audit and operational risk management, I threw caution to the wind and left a reliable corporate job and forayed into small business. Armed with a Certificate III in Floristry and combined with undergrad and postgrad degrees in Business and Accounting, I hit the ground running and opened a retail shopfront called Flowers at Haberfield. My love affair with flowers began. My soul, my mind and my heart were finally happy.
I'm happily married to my soul mate, a mum to 3 grown up children and nana to 2 grand kids. I'm authentic, compassionate, empathetic and focussed. I passionately love working with florals and carefully consider the placement of every bloom. Each colour, hue and tone is purposeful and conveys my heartfelt emotion. I'm not afraid to stand out or stand on my own. I'm resilient and have a never say never attitude.
I would love to create some flowers just for you!
My Flowers at Haberfield online store has changed its name to Gathered Floral. This is just a name change, and not a change in ownership. Thank you for all your support in 2020 - it has been a huge year and I'm very grateful.
I am currently closed for a break, reopening Monday 1st February.
Best, Catherine x
