Grew up on Waialua Plantation where I came to love the close-knit, caring community. Attended local and private schools and graduated from La Pietra. Attended LSU and Penn State on the mainland then came home and got involved in my community here on the North Shore.
I love the small, rural community atmosphere of Waialua and Haleiwa, the beautiful, special, unique environment, and the cultures and people of Hawaii. I'm grateful every day to live in Hawaii.
My interests are sustainable community development/capacity building, agriculture, education, health, politics, conservation and historic preservation
