About me

`Ano `ai!I am truly humbled to return home and blessed to work with our haumāna, kumu, lima hana, alakaʻi, nā makua, and community as the Poʻo Kula for the Kamehameha Schools Maui.

I look forward to collaborating with all of our ʻohana in providing an exceptional educational opportunity for our Native Hawaiian children.

As a graduate of Maui High School this island and its people mean so much to me.

I was fortunate to attend Maui Community College then the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Physical Education (1998) and a Master’s degree in Educational Administration (2004).

Always yearning to learn, I continued my educational journey with the University of Southern California where in 2014, I earned a Doctorate in Educational Leadership.

Truly an educator at heart, I began my career working with the County of Maui Summer PALS as well as the Department of Education After School A+ programs.

My teaching journey began at Hāna High and Elementary School, where I taught health and physical education to students in grades K-12.

I then had the privilege to teach physical education at the Kamehameha Schools Maui in the elementary, middle, and high schools.

I’ve served as both a Vice Principal (Princess Nahiʻenaʻena Elementary School in Lāhaina) and Principal (Jefferson Elementary School in Waikīkī) with the Department of Education.

In 2014 I returned to Kamehameha Schools, this time at the Kapālama Campus as Vice Principal for the class of 2015 and then for the class of 2019.

In 2016 I was offered a position as Hope Poʻo Kula (Assistant Head of School) for one year.

Aside from my passion for working in the school setting, I am also a member of the Hawaiʻi Air National Guard, as a Staff Sergeant with the 201st Air Operations Group at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

I’ve also served as an enlisted aircrew member (C-17 Loadmaster) with the 204th Airlift Squadron and a Radio Operator with the 292nd Combat Communications Squadron.

In my spare time I love to travel, enjoying adventures with my family and friends.

I’ve been fortunate to visit over 15 countries and numerous states on the continent.

I look forward to new adventures to come both here at home and abroad.
