✿ Meet the Crew
Mike has co-owned Ben White Florist with his brother Cliff for 36 years. He enjoys Jazz music and equips the flower shop with an array of timeless jazz photos.
Although he pours his heart into every flower arrangement for his wonderful customers, Cliff is most at home with Bar-B-Que and power tools. He and his lovely wife Janice spend spare time relaxing at their country home with “their” 2 longhorns, Spike and Curly.
Jessica: Office Manager
Jessica began her career with Ben White Florist in January of 2000. When not hard at work mediating staff and computer systems, she is in the office making schedules and plans for the next big idea for the shop. She enjoys playing outside with her son, two chihuahuas and husband. Down time is playing Animal Crossing.
Rachel: Store Manager; Lead Designer
Rachel has been professionally playing with flowers since April 2008. When not hard at work designing beautiful floral arrangements or taking photographs, she can be found indulging in copious amounts of coffee and curry with her partner, David. Currently perfecting the art of animal mothering to her amazing dog, Mortimer, and three crazy cats, she finds solace in the beauty and unknown of scifi, discovering the power of the human heart in English literature, writing with a Pilot pen, and using far too many words to write a simple statement, such as,
“I like tacos.” So it goes.
Anahi, raised in Austin, is a super sweet, unbelievably nice, and full-of-fun girl who loves walking by Town Lake with her dog, Lehla. In her free time, she likes painting abstract paintings as well as baking sweet treats and eating her mom’s homemade food. When not at work, she’s either running errands, shopping with her friends, or having fun cruising around the city with her cousin while being fascinated by the color pink.
Erin likes animals, flowers and smiling and taking beautiful pictures.
Amari: Designer in Training
Powered by Dr. Pepper and chicken nuggets, Amari is a designer in training at Ben White Florist. After work she loves reading, watching horror movies, and coding!
Nick: The Rose Man
Nick is an invaluable addition to the working machine that is Ben White Florist. He comes in several times a week to process all of the incoming fresh cut blooms and keep the shelves and machinery stocked and in proper working order.
Eric: Driver Extraordinaire
Eric livened up our team in September 2006.
Eric is kept rather busy delivering your fresh flowers all over town. When not at work Eric performs with his band, hangs out with his wife and kitty, Mr. Fabulous.
George: Self proclaimed, Shop Kitty
George is a neighborhood kitty that adopted the flower shop in early May of 2019.
He shows up every morning, promptly at 6:45 am to be let in by the first person to arrive at 7:30 am. His favorite past time is sleeping any where he darn well pleases and he enjoys wet food as a treat. George appreciates for every human that passes through the flower shop doors to greet him and give him a scratch.
