Earlier this year, Opal Co-Founder, Kara Bazzi was awarded as one of Puget Sound Business Journal’s 40 under 40. 

Kara was awarded for her work in the eating disorder field, specifically in her work around sport and exercise. 

“I’m proud to be representing Opal with this award! I believe in the important work we are doing to help people find freedom in their relationship to food, body, sport and movement. This work allows people to live more fully and contribute in their own communities. I’m grateful that this acknowledgment will help more people to know about Opal!” – Kara
