Jessica Sheldon, also known as Jade, has been designing flowers professionally since 2005. Joining the Flowerama team as a young high school student she has grown up learning all the ins and outs of the floral industry. Jessica continued her education receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from The Smeal College of Business, Penn State University. Working on school breaks and holidays she never could let her love for flowers go. She has now found her calling here at the Rama as a member of the full time staff. From designing everyday flower arrangements to creating some amazing Fruit Bouquets, Jessica does a little bit of everything here. In her future she plans to continue her journey in the floral industry by studying to becoming accredited in the American Institute of Floral Designers.
I am a young North Hills native with a passion for flowers, plants, video games, writing and painting. My parents instilled in me a serene appreciation of the natural world, and by the third grade, I was already nicknamed "Nature Girl" for my lessons to the other kids on the playground. I mean, none of them knew why cattails spread so fast, or the reproductive cycle of salamanders; someone had to tell them.
My love for the woods, hills and ponds of Western Pennsylvania also opened an avenue to Native American study, and I spent many afternoons reading of Shawnee towns, Sacajawea's journey with the Corps of Discovery, and the lore of spirit legends. These subjects in turn led me to books about the Paleolithic era of periglacial steppes, super fauna and cave paintings. That spark has burned brightly in my heart ever since my first read-through of The Clan of the Cave Bear. My walls are littered with recreations from Chauvet Cave, the singularly oldest and best preserved example of parietal art, dating to some thirty thousand years. While no flower arrangements survived that time span, there was an Ice Age grave exhumed in Afghanistan that showed traces of flower pollen mixed among mammoth ivory fragments. It's interesting to imagine floriology had such early beginnings.
After a cavalcade of post-high school jobs, (including a pet store, greeting card gallery, photo counter and a motorcycle apparels outlet) I finally found a promising future in the floral industry, and plan on staying in the field with the support of my heart and my husband, John. Flowerama welcomed my artistry, and the incredible team is helping me grow as a designer, business agent and adult. I have been incredibly lucky to find a calling, to get involved in an ever-evolving world, and to learn to create beauty under the intense pressure of customer vision and satisfaction. I love handling hundreds of orchids and thousands of roses, and my heart races with the excitement of a perfect bloom as it passes through me to you.

I have been delivering smiles for Flowerama since 2014. It has been so much fun! Now, I'm ready for the next step. To work in the shop next to some amazing ladies, learning to create beautiful floral designs.
I feel so lucky to have been given the opportunity to not only grow with the company but to have made some great friends along the way!
I look forward to what the future holds!
