Meet Lara Roldo
Lara Roldo was born and raised in Terrace, but like many young people, she left for several years to pursue post-secondary education. She studied languages in university and intended to live and work overseas after she graduated. However, her years away from Terrace helped her to realize how much she missed her hometown, its natural beauty, mountain skyline and fresh, clean air. So, after university, she returned home.
During those years, Lara had begun to be drawn to the idea of floral design, of putting colors together to create something visually beautiful that people could appreciate. Soon, the opportunity to purchase what used to be called Central Flowers in Terrace fell into Lara’s lap. The timing of the opportunity just couldn’t be ignored. She bought the business in 1996 and went about transforming it into something very different, adding a unique, designer gift shop and re-naming it Fiori Design. She shifted the focus to quality craftsmanship in every design, and it is something that she is still committed to two decades later. Lara loves the opportunity to express her creativity through her work. She is proud of all the shop’s other likeminded staff who are just as deeply committed to the studio’s success and talented in their ability to put together stunning Fiori designs.
Lara admits that small business ownership can be challenging at times. However, she knows that greater challenges bring deeper rewards and so she has never regretted her decision to take up floral design or business ownership. Though it keeps her very busy, it doesn’t stop her from enjoying the satisfaction she brings to her loyal customers or from finding time to devote to her family.
