After earning a BA in International Relations from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, I pursued a full career in marketing communications. I worked in corporations, museums and educational institutions, but in the back of my mind, it was always my hope to have my own business and bring cross cultural understanding, peace and joy in some small way to this crazy world we live in.

Along the way, I began practicing the art of ikebana (Japanese flower arranging) and joined Ikebana International. Its motto - "Friendship through Flowers" - was created at a time when the world was recovering from the ravages of war. It urges all of us to join together in a spirit of peace and harmony. 

I have found a passion in working with flowers and truly hope Pink Opal Floral spreads a little love, joy and maybe even peace to you and yours 💕
