About me

Aloha mai kākou- My name is Stacey Makanui and I am the KMS Dean of Student Life. I was raised on the island of Lana’i and enjoy the country lifestyle. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences from the University of Northern Colorado, Masters in Education in Counseling and Guidance from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, and a College Counseling Certificate from the University of California San Diego.In my spare time I love to spend time with my husband and 2 children Ava (8) & Peyton (2). My favorite quote is : “be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.”
