I was born in Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii and grew up amidst the Wainaku sugar cane plantations of yester-year, where my dad was a superintendent with Hilo Sugar Company. Here, a strong work ethic was instilled and became a core value for my brother, three sisters and myself. Reflecting back, life was very simple, satisfying and rewarding.
After graduating from Hilo High School, I studied business at Hawaii College. I also married my high school sweetheart, and we have two daughters and one grandson, Kalikiano, who has brought so much joy into our lives!
I've been a licensed REALTOR® in Hawaii since 2002. Since becoming licensed, I have pursued additional education in real estate, earning my ABR (Accredited Buyer Representive) designation in 2006 and my CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation in 2007, all while being employed full-time at a major utility as a Purchasing Officer in the Accounting department.
I am proud to say that I'm now a FULL-TIME REALTOR® DEDICATED to YOUR SUCCESS.
