The Kelly's Team
Krista Mackler, owner & designer
Krista's passion for flowers began in highschool when she began working for Kelly's as a part time student and upon graduating PDCI in 1998, made it her goal to someday become owner of “the nicest flower shop in town.” In 1999 she attended the Algonquin College Floral Program and continued her training in 2000 through Guelph University's Wedding Design Program. Under former owners Peggy Paul, Cathie & Dale McCabe and Pascale Mapleston, Krista received guidance and training in the areas of design and business which prepared her to purchase Kelly's on May 1st, 2014. Growing up on a local farm has taught Krista the importance of supporting local growers and therefor sources as much as she can locally. As a director on the Perth BIA and member of the parent council at Stewart School, Krista is an active member in the Perth community. Krista resides here in Perth with her husband Mike Mackler and their two daughters Kaylee and Skylar.
Jessica Lemay, designer
Jesssica is very excited to be joining the team at Kelly's flowers. She is originally from Iqaluit, Nunavut and spent some time in the Yukon before settling in Smiths Falls with her three dogs and husband. She graduated from the floral design course at Algonquin college in 2004 and worked at In Bloom in Kanata for three years. Then she worked in the Byward Market running a flower stand and managing a shoe store. She is currently work part-time in the health care field as a personal support worker. It was more than ten years ago that she got the opportunity to do a placement at Kelly's as a floral design student and couldn't be happier to have the opportunity to be back. She is looking forward to starting this new chapter in her life and meeting all your friendly faces.
Sharon Mahon, designer
Many of you may recognize Sharon from the formerly known Sinclair's Flowers here in Perth, where she spent 14 years as a designer. Sharon was welcomed as part of the Kelly's design team in November of 2011 and continues to specialize in traditional and contemporary sympathy arrangements. Recently titled the “plant lady”, Sharon is our resident plant expert with her ability to answer just about any question regarding plant-care. Sharon is a longtime Perth resident with her husband Kevin Mahon, where they have raised their three sons Josh (Molly), Nick (Michelle) and Brandon. Sharon is also the very proud grandmother to her adorable grandson Joseph.
When Catherine was hired at Kelly's in 2013, she was over the moon, as Kelly's has always been a favourite shopping destination for her. A longtime employee of the former Special Occasions gift shop in Perth, many of you will recognize Catherine for her warm welcoming smile and personal style. Catherine has a passion for home decor and loves spending time with her son Adam and travelling to New York City to visit her daughter Sarah.
Jaimee is the newest employee here at Kelly's. Born and raised in Perth, Jaimee has been working as a part-time student in the area for several years- some may recognize her from Sunflower Bakeshop and Valiquette's 4 Season Auto Cleaning. Jaimee's customer service skills and eagerness to learn and meet new people make her a great fit for our growing business. Jaimee plans to attend school in the fall to pursue her dream career as a nurse and we hope that her busy schedule permits her to make an appearance or two at Kelly's over the 2015 holiday season!
