MEET THE TEAM
Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Sarah grew up in a family where flowers and parties were cherished and enjoyed. Sarah moved to Norfolk in 1987 and literally turned over a new leaf, thus the name of the flower shop. Together with her love of flowers and people she creates unique designs that capture the special moments in her customer’s lives. Sarah creates and oversees the beautiful floral designs that are our signature and have been for 30 years! In her free time Sarah loves to read, travel, and play golf.
A native of Norfolk, Laurel graduated from Granby High School then received a Bachelor of Arts degree from VCU in Richmond and a Masters of Fine Arts from Old Dominion University. She joined with The New Leaf to bring the art of museum archival framing to The New Leaf. The two owners merged and created The New Leaf & Quarberg Gallery. After five years Laurel was more enthused about the floral side of the business, thus she closed the gallery to focus on The New Leaf - the unusual in floral design. Today Laurel runs the administrative and marketing side of the flower shop. In her free time Laurel enjoys fishing, boating, and travel.
Jeremy has been a member of our New Leaf family since 2011. Today we are proud to have him as our manager. He is not only a talented designer but also has a green thumb and takes care of all of our exotic plants. He is well versed in all aspects of our floral business from design to delivery. A native of Norfolk, Jeremy grew up in the house beside our shop in West Ghent. We were proud in 2014 when he won a scholarship via Teleflora, one of the leading National Floral Associations, to attend a week of intensive floral design training at their headquarters in Oklahoma City.
The 2018 AIFD Symposium was held in Washington DC. International award-winning designers are invited each year to create spectacular designs. Jeremy was selected to be a part of the backstage team that assists these remarkable designers.

You just can’t ask for better service and customer care than at New Leaf. Every member of the staff has taken great care of my orders. The designs are beautiful, fresh, modern – yet gorgeously simple and familiar at the same time. Highly recommend!Sarah S.
The florists at New Leaf Florist in Norfolk, VA made lovely bouquets for my daughter’s wedding. They paid special attention to colors and types of lowers I requested while being very respectful of the budget. I can not thank them enough for their attentive service and their flexibility!Liz
