Kate moved to Nashville in 2011 from Southeastern Wisconsin to pursue her background in the arts, specifically photography. After a life changing road trip from Nashville to Yosemite National Park she realized a new passion for nature and plant life. She built a greenhouse in her backyard, started researching nurseries, and began dreaming up ways to turn a her new found hobby into a career. When she's not working at Flora you can find her reading, enjoying a cocktail, snapping photos, or taking hikes with her husband, Brian, and dog, Bjorn.
Kerbi moved to Nashville in 2005 for college and fell in love with the city. Prior to Flora, she spent the first few years of her career working in social enterprise development for various humanitarian causes. As a plant lover and entrepreneur, starting Flora was a dream come true. She loves tending to her vegetable garden and finding creative ways to cook what she grows. You can also find her at the Belcourt seeing a film or porch hangin' with her husband, Chad..
