Veronica's Story

Veronica Vescio-Wrigley is celebrating her first year in business, owner of Cathy’s Flower and Gift BoutiqueWasaga Beach, ON. Over a year ago, Veronica was visiting her friend Cathy who announced she was retiring, selling everything including her business. Leaving her surprised, Veronica began asking Cathy many questions, When? Where will you be traveling? What kind of buyer are your looking for? This conversation went on for about an hour. She looked at Cathy, without a blink of an eye, Veronica responds, “what about me?” Cathy loved the idea, thought Veronica would be a perfect fit. She went home called her husband David and said, “I think I just bought a flower shop”, laughing he said, “I’m not surprised”. Her journey began, from owning her own painting and decorating business to a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, now florist, shop owner.

Veronica brings with her corporate management, business, life coaching experience and customer service. Veronica has contributed to the community through volunteering with the Lions Club, VCARS and the WSA, Wasaga Society of the Arts as a Protections Officer. Veronica lives and works in Wasaga Beach with her husband David and their puppies Ellie and Tucker. They also enjoy their time off with their children and grandchildren.

She has transformed Cathy’s Flower and Gifts making it her own, with a new look, new design, new colour and new branding.
