Elaine lived in Tokyo, Japan for 25 years and received her Master Degree from the Ichiyo School during that period. She likes to arrange both classical and contemporary but contemporary is her favorite. After moving to the United States in 1989, she began teaching, traveling, and giving workshops/demonstrations. In 1998 she was awarded an Executive Master Degree by the Ichiyo School. In 2009 she was appointed President of the newly formed Atlanta Chapter of the Ichiyo School and held that position until 2021 when she became chief advisor.
