Diny Baartman spent 32 years on the retail side of the floral industry both as a designer and store owner. In 2012, she made the move to North American Wholesale Florist where her expertise is put to the test daily. When it comes to her work, Diny is excited to see the ways in which the industry changes over the years and she has a passion for flowers and the happy feelings they provide. Diny enjoys working with her customers, getting to know their personalities without knowing their faces.
For Diny, family comes first. This coming spring she will become a grandma, and Diny cannot wait to spoil the new little bundle of joy. In her free time, Diny enjoys riding as a passenger on her husband’s motorcycle, camping, and beating the boys at bean bags in the summer or cards in the winter. A Chester native, Diny was a volunteer EMT for the Chester Fire Department for more than 16 years, and still serves on the Dell Rapids Ambulance Board. If you ever visit Chester, she recommends Hef’s, the family-run pub that has been in her family for years.
