pronounced JAY-leen

I'm Jalene!

Jalene Montross

I wish I could say my love for flowers began because of some childhood experience or other sentimental reason, but it's not as interesting as that.
I kind of fell into it. 
I needed a job, and my friend worked at a flower shop. 
The shop was hiring, so I applied. 
I was hired for a customer service position, and eventually, the owner started teaching me how to design and we both realized that I had a knack for it. 
This was in the 90's, in a small flower shop in Ketchum, Idaho.

Fast forward to 2021... after years of working in retail flower shops for other people, I realized it was time for a change. I had become obsessed with wedding and event florals, so I decided to make the switch. I left my job at the retail flower shop and started JM flora.
