ep.18 | Making the jump from pets to petals with Kaitlan Long of Downtown Flowers
Wassup "WED TALKERS" We are so excited about sharing the next few episodes with you all!! First off, we love every episode as they all have their own uniqueness to each one, but for the upcoming four episodes, WE ARE WED TALKS. went on the road to Atlanta, Georgia! We are so thankful as well as Ambient+Plus Studio was so gracious to host our guest for the podcast recordings and us all day.
Our first guest Kaitlin Long of Downtown Flowers, actually recommended where we recorded and is just one of the sweetest, most creative vendors we have had the pleasure of podcasting with.
Kaitlin started as a veterinarian assistant in 2009. She loved helping animals, but in late 2014 when she and her husband Dillon Long were expecting their first child, lifting 50-pound dogs on to the vet table didn't seem like the best idea for an expecting mother. As things would have it, about that time, an opportunity came available to start helping at Downtown Flowers. So Kaitlin took the jump and left the vet gig and started working at Downtown Flowers, not knowing how far it would take her.
2019, another child and, another storefront later, Kaitlin is the sole owner of Downtown Flower's two locations and pursuing her dreams and enjoying making her client's dreams and visions come true.
By continuously pushing the business to grow, getting out of her comfort zone, meeting new vendors, using her creativity & resiliency, Kaitlin has made Downtown Flowers into one of the best florists around the North Georgia, Atlanta area!
