“My little summer time job turned into my lifetime career.” – Trina Prejean
Since 1997, Trina Prejean, a licensed horticulturist, has been the owner and manager for Don-Lyn Florist and gift shop in Zachary, Louisiana. During the summer before her senior year of high school, at the age of 16, Prejean began working for her mentor Earline Durio at The Greenery, a florist shop in Denham Springs, Louisiana. Little did she know that her experience there would lead to her success 26 years later.
Providing beautiful floral arrangements for weddings, funerals, holidays, and other occasions such as the Zachary and Pride-Chaneyville Branch Library grand openings, Don-Lyn Florist has been a thriving business in the Zachary area. “Zachary’s growth is booming! The new library branches that have opened in the Zachary and Pride-Chaneyville are wonderful and I am so excited for our community.”
Prejean is an active member of the Zachary Chamber of Commerce. She keeps up-to-date in the business world by reading Florist Review, Flowers&, and The Florist Magazine, all of which offer the latest tips on merchandise, decorating work/show rooms, and care of flowers. The magazines also provide lists of new vendors and companies with available products.
During her leisure time, Prejean enjoys reading the works of Jeffery Deaver and Nicholas Sparks. Although two totally different genres, Prejean finds an interest and a balance in each of these authors.
