Lesley Frascogna is the creative force and owner behind Tulip, a brand that encompasses floral services, workshops, and most recently and brick and mortar shop. Lesley fell in love with flowers at a young age while working catering jobs throughout Chicago and the North Shore. In her 20s she put that love to the test as she became the proud owner of her first floral boutique, Roscoe Blooms, in Chicago, IL.
A chance meeting on a dog beach led her to her now-husband, a Mississippi native and the reason Lesley made the move to Jackson. Shortly after their wedding in 2008, she started Tulip - working out of a design studio and happily taking on weddings and events. Most recently, she led Tulip into the retail frontier by moving her business into a new storefront property in The Town of Livingston in Flora, MS. She’s beyond thrilled to once again have a shop of her own; one that allows her to create beautiful things and a meaningful community.
When she’s not creating artistic floral and buying for her shop, she’s spending time with her other passions: her husband Marty, kids Frank and Birdie, and dog-kids Fran and Lucy.
After having two kids and running a creative business, Lesley found it difficult to connect with other like-minded women in the same field. She wanted to create a community of creative business owners who understood the difficult dynamic of motherhood and business owner. NOURISH was created out of love and compassion for busy “mamaprenuers” who are trying to find a work, life balance and connect with other industry mamas.
