Meet the McKinney's Team

A little bit about us...

Leeanne is a third generation floral designer in the McKinney family. She has been managing McKinney’s Flowers since 2002, representing the long-established shop her grandparents, Jess and Dorothy McKinney, created in 1947. Leeanne graduated from design school in 1996, becoming an Indiana State Certified Florist shortly after. Her family’s passion for flowers radiates through her work, as she has earned prizes at the state level in floral design and continues to pursue this integral dedication with yearly design classes. Leeanne enjoys many adventurous outdoor hobbies, such as: traveling, hiking, rock-climbing, skiing, and mountain biking. She also loves spending time with her family and two dogs, Q & Daisy. If she had the choice, she would choose cold weather over hot, which is surprising for a gal who lived in Phoenix, Arizona for quite some time. 

 

Natalie is truly a Jill of all trades: you can catch her delivering on occasion, designing silk and fresh arrangements, talking to customers on the phone, and designing the store-front display. Designing with fresh flowers is her newest skill and something she really loves to do. Natalie has a knack for thrifted fashion and always has a funky & stylish outfit complete with far-out earrings. When she isn't at the shop, Natalie enjoys singing karaoke with her friends, listening to music from every decade before 2000, crafting everything under the sun, and spending time with her two boys, Frank & Dustin. More than anything, Natalie wishes that there more occasions in life to dress up, wear high heels, and have a good time. 

 

Sheila delivers the beautiful florals, planters, and keepsakes to their requested destinations. She strives to deliver in a timely manner and brighten everyone's day! She has been at McKinney's for two years—a dream that she has always had. Sheila has a green thumb inside and outside of McKinney's and enjoys tending to her houseplants and flower garden. In her spare time, you can catch Sheila watching sports with her husband, interior designing, spending time with her mama, and playing with her Bichon fur-baby, Peyton. Sometimes after a long day driving to Timbuktu and back, Sheila enjoys a glass of wine. Who can blame her?

 

Kaitlyn is a designer at McKinney’s and also specializes in customer service. She first started out at a flower shop in Temecula, California after graduating from high school. She enjoys designing wedding flowers, especially ones that are on the wilder side. Kaitlyn is studying Wildlife at Purdue University, but her area of expertise is in mycology: the study of fungi. When she isn't working or attending classes, Kaitlyn likes to forage and explore in natural areas, tend to her overwhelming collection of plants, and spend time with her loved ones and two cats, Onyx & Prim. On occasion, Kaitlyn dreams of being a rollerskating legend, despite the fact that she has a knack for accidents.

 

Monique takes care of all of our flowers here at McKinney's. She started working in the flower business a few years ago and previously studied at UIndy. She is currently working on her medical coding degree. In her spare time, she loves to write stories and read, especially anything science fiction-related. She recommends British science fiction author Neal Asher and is always willing to accept book suggestions. Monique is creative in other extraordinary ways, as she loves to collect and design things with unique beads and even designs entire cosplay costumes for herself. Chocolate may or may not be the way to her heart, nudge-nudge.

 

Peggy is a designer here at the shop and has worked with plants and flowers her entire life. She previously worked at Bennett’s Greenhouse and Marsh’s Flower Department and her experience shines, especially when it comes to creating unique & intuitive solutions for any order. Peggy grew up in the woods, sparking her passion as a nature-lover and likes to garden and go camping in every season. She is a proud Niches Land Supporter. Peggy also has one granddaughter and possesses an eclectic musical taste. If you ever are in need of a new band to listen to, chances are Peggy will have just the one for you. 

 

Karen is an experienced designer who once ran her own shop and now graces McKinney's with her stunning & polished design skills. She certainly doesn't shy away from big designs, from huge flower arrangements in vase or foam to elegant casket sprays and standing easels. Karen enjoys cooking and making things from scratch, visiting Florida to see both her kids and grandkids, and brewing her very own kombucha that is so much better than anything you can find at the store. 

 

Rylan, step-son of Leeanne, is a fourth generation delivery driver at McKinney's. You can catch him delivering on every Wednesday. He also helps take care of our backyard lawn from time to time. Rylan is extremely passionate about soccer and has been involved in the sport since he was little. In his spare time, he loves to stay in shape, go out on the lake to fish and hang out with friends.

 

Micah is a talented designer and owns her own flower-growing business, Honey Bee Flower Farm. Some of the flowers that you see in our arrangements, especially during the warm weather months, are grown with passion from Micah’s farm. She has spent her whole life within the horticulture industry and around flowers, graduating from Purdue with a horticulture degree. Micah loves growing unique flowers in her greenhouse, spending time outside, and making delicious food the old-fashioned way: from scratch. She enjoys passing her time with her husband, her adorable daughter Alice, and their two cats, Juniper and Mittens. In this season of her life, she's learning how to grow a sweet baby instead of sweet william and enjoying every second of it.

Substitution Policy

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
