Floral Lifestyle Expert Julie Mulligan
Julie started her career in the floral industry more than 30 years ago in a small, family-owned flower shop in New York City. Julie’s career path followed the same upward trajectory of that once little enterprise known today as 1-800-Flowers.com, one of the largest and most recognizable brands in the floral and gift industry.
From floral designer responsible for creating many of the company’s signature products, to author and lifestyle expert, Julie’s taste and insight have been instrumental in developing the 1-800-Flowers.com brand.
Representing the Company’s floral lifestyle vision, Julie has shared her talent and passion in numerous television appearances including The Montel Williams Show, Extra, WABC Eyewitness News, and NBC’s Weekend Today. She’s also been featured in high-circulation national magazines like People, US Weekly, Star, Family Circle and Women’s Day, Celebrity Weddings and popular design blogs.
In her current role as Senior Vice President of Merchandising, Product Development, and Photography, Julie is synthesizing her expertise in the creative realm with her extensive business and corporate management experience to lead a team of design professionals who are responsible for the development of the company’s truly original product line.
Julie is an active fundraiser and longtime friend of IGHL, a group dedicated to facilitating a more independent life for developmentally challenged adults.
