Anastasia has two Master’s degrees in Computer Science in Business Administration. She has worked as an IT professional for over 10 years and her last experience was with a well-known Fortune 500 IT company. However, entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to create pressed her to make the decision to leave the IT industry and focus on developing Rose Jasmine.
Anastasia is both technically and creatively minded. She felt the Atlanta floral market needed chic, elegant, and modern arrangements. When Anastasia began to explore the floral market as a florist, she fell in love with flowers and floral design. Anastasia is now receiving a Floral Design Certification from New York Institute of Art and Design.
“At Rose Jasmine, we are committed to producing extraordinary arrangements.”
