Are you ready for the final step? See how EMC impacted Patti Bowman...

During international travels, I collected European floral magazines and was inspired by
the artistry of EMC graduates.

Although, I am formally trained and certified in Ikebana and
Western design, the EMC European Certification program significantly expanded my
skill repertoire. The high caliber of EMC students and graduates across the globe
provides significant collaboration and learning opportunities.

The EMC program accelerated my professional development in floral artistry and being a part of the EMC family provides endless networking opportunities.
