Glenda Wise is the mom of Ashton and Grayson. She started her decorating and event design career while living in Pensacola, Florida. She owned a local floral and wedding business that focused primarily on destination beach weddings. Shortly after Hurricane Ivan, she and Donnie (the hubby and dad) decided to move back to Oklahoma where she opened a floral shop. After the girls started getting older, she realized it was time for a change, so she sold the flower shop and joined the family real estate and construction business. She is a licensed real estate agent and real estate appraiser. She also enjoys volunteering in the community. She serves on the board of directors of the Leflore County Women’s Crisis Services and chairs their annual fundraiser, Brave the Mud Run. Seeing a project either construction or an event begin with an idea and turn into a reality is what drives her passion.
“I love helping someone take a simple thought and turn it into something tangible brings me great joy no matter how big, small or challenging the project is.” -Glenda Wise
