Born in Honolulu and raised in Kapahulu and Kaimuki, I am a graduate of Sacred Hearts Academy, Kapi'olani Community College, and Hawaiʻi Pacific University. While studying marketing, journalism, and communication, I worked for The Chamber of Commerce of Hawai'i, Hawai'i Public Radio, Kapiʻolani Health/Hawaiʻi Pacific Health, Patsy T. Mink Center for Business & Leadership at YWCA Oʻahu, and Hawaiʻi Pacific University in the areas of event planning, marketing, fundraising, training, writing, publication design, and regulatory compliance. My Communication course design focuses on students learning about themselves, their own communication strengths and challenges, and what they think about the world they are inheriting, as well as exposure to how communication touches all disciplines/industries and the practical application of communication concepts to everyday life.
