Deanna King

I was born and raised Webster, New York.  My dream of owning a flower shop began in my youth. I have always loved flowers & plants- pretty things!  My experience working at Bauman’s Farm Market & Greenhouse really sparked my passion for floral design. I attended VCU and became a teacher for ten years.  I was given the opportunity to buy Strawberry Fields from the previous owners, who I had actually worked for during the summer. My husband was extremely supportive of this venture and here I am ten years later. Having my shop, Strawberry Fields Flowers & Finds has given me the opportunity to infuse my passion for floral design into the Richmond community & make my dreams come true.

I adore plant life; cacti, succulents, ferns, moss, trees and especially flowers! I graduated from VCU with the intention of becoming a Visual Artist or Urban Designer and stumbled upon Floral Design. Being a florist is the most spectacular job in the world! I love working with life in such a creative way. In my spare time I am an aspiring photographer, traveler and plant hoarder. Check out my website if you are in need of a photographer for your next event. I am so happy to live and work in such an inspiring community like RVA. There is no other place like this in the world!

Kealan Sojack

I’ve lived all over Virginia, but for the past 3 years Richmond has been my home. For the first few years after college I became increasingly involved in collecting house plants and growing salad fixings while working my desk job. My degree gave me the job I had coveted for years, yet I was miserable. Upon reflection, I found gardening was my most fulfilling hobby, and shortly after quitting advertising I started driving the flower van (affectionately nicknamed “Vaughn”) for Deanna. Since then I have been doing daily deliveries, farmers markets, and workshops with Strawberry Fields. For the first time in my life I can say I love my boss and the job she has provided me. When not working I enjoy sketching, backpacking, anything on a board, beer, and the mob of pets that share our bed.
