Riannon McVay 

Owner / Florist 

Hi flower fam! I'm Riannon, the owner of Hanson Road Flower Co. I grew up in St. Stephen, New Brunswick on Hanson Road, and that is where I fell in love with flowers! The first time my mom pulled my sister and I down the road in our handmade pink wagon picking wild lupins and brown eyed susans for our kitchen table will forever remain a life-shaping moment in my mind. I studied Landscape Design and Urban Planning in Nova Scotia, and worked in Community Development in Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. before deciding that the 9-5 life just wasn't for me, and instead I hit the high road for Australia. Once I got there, I spent some time travelling the coastline in a camper van, all the while trying hard to figure out what I really wanted for myself amongst the gum trees and the ocean breeze. Unpredictably, I solved the mystery while working at a bar on Chapel Street in Melbourne, as it was there that flowers serendipitously became a part of my life again. Several dozen bar-top arrangements later, I found myself in an Australian floral design school, and now a couple of years after that, you can find me in my very own little shop not 100km from where it all began :)

Hannah Robinson

Creative Director 

Hi hello, I'm Hannah! My dream during my last year of university was to work for a small, female owned business, and it really doesn't get any better than this.

I've worn many different hats since starting here last fall, but now I'm settling into my permanent role as the creative director!

At this point I'd say I'm equal parts crazy cat & plant lady. In the summer you can find me tending to my vegetable garden and reading Nicolas Sparks in a lawn chair, and in the winter you can find me impatiently waiting for summer. 

No matter how long I work here or how many flowers I see, nothing makes me happier than taking home a bouquet of Hanson Road blooms.

Jessie Gagne

Plant Care Specialist 

Hello Roadies! I’m Jessie, and I am the shop’s Plant Care Specialist. My journey with this flowery little dream team started in May of 2021. I was in a rut and needed a change - big time. Always having been fascinated with the outdoors, nature, and greenery, I had been studying and adding houseplants to my space in efforts to add those aspects; while also inducing some productivity and accountability for myself. Eventually, I found myself completely entranced by all the foliage that surrounded me and the green world at my fingertips. I knew that I had found my passion, the first thing that stuck and genuinely felt true. Flash forward to today, I’m putting my passion and experience into play and truly love what I do!

Chee Riemenschneider

Delivery Driver + All Rounder

Yo and Hello! I’m Chee :) and I’m the new All-Rounder. Born and raised in small-town Alberta, I craved the city life and moved to Vancouver. There I studied Fashion Design & Marketing and eventually met my husband and we have gradually drifted east to Fredericton.

 

I am a die-hard DIY’er with a thirst for learning. From collecting onion skins to naturally dye cotton string for macrame to stitching moccasins to sewing my own wedding dress slip, I have gained a peculiar skillset. I dove headfirst into the world of all things house plants during the pandemic and now have a plant fam of 68 and always adopting. 

 

I get restless in the mundane and am inspired to be around like-minded people. This is why I am so excited to contribute and be a part of this beautiful collective at Hanson Road. The moment I stepped into this flower team, I knew this was a place for me and my peculiar skillset to thrive!

 

Also - I have a cat. Her name is Oprah. I love her.
