Oak spent her childhood in a little Ugandan town called Masaka. There were no gift shops in town so Oak started designing and making cards as a little girl for birthdays and other special occasions. Oak eventually moved to New York City with her family and attended Colgate University. After she obtained a Masters of Business Administration degree from Fordham University, she worked for a number of famous New York City companies in their advertising, marketing and creative departments. Sixteen years after she graduated college, Oak decided that it was time to go back to her passion of making people smile in creative ways and Tumbalina was born.
In its first year of business, Tumbalina began by selling their original products to a few local stationery stores.

Many people are curious about the origin of the name Tumbalina, Well, it comes from a pet name that Oak’s boyfriend (now her husband) gave her when she was 16 years old. The name was an appropriate fit, as it was a token of affection, very much like the cards which Oak and her talented team create at Tumbalina.
