Climate Resilience and Equity Manager
One Interesting Thing About Me:
I was Miss Rodeo Hawaii 1999 and I started riding horses at the age of 4 yrs old. ;)
Born, raised and educated on O'ahu and Moku o Keawe, Hawai'i. Recently joined the City and County of Honolulu's Office of Climate Change, Sustainability and Resiliency (CCSR) as the Climate Resilience and Equity Manager.
Dedicated to re-cultivating community resiliency and wellbeing through the practice of regenerative relationships. Spent the last 10 years repurposing my global travel industry background in service to generational transformation and adaptation. In 2016, founded Conscious Concepts, a social enterprise in service to 'aina and arts initiatives providing project management, community programming and place-based travel curation.
In the spirit of radical collaborations, continues to cultivate the practice of interweaving corporate and grassroots, island and global perspectives in holistic approaches to centering equitable emergent solutions genuinely reflective of and appropriate to people and place.
