Rosie is the Director of the LAC. Her 40+ years at UHM includes taking a full-time position at the counseling center right after graduating with a bachelors in secondary education, earning a masters degree in counseling, becoming tenured faculty, earning a doctorate in educational psychology, working in testing, counseling, outreach, career placement, and finally learning assistance. She loves helping students achieve their academic goals with foci on finding the right career, developing effective learning strategies, and sustaining motivation. She finds service the focal point of her career. Besides serving students and faculty, she actively participates in faculty governance, holds leadership positions in national professional organizations and maintains a healing practice.
When she finds time to relax and have fun, she likes to practice calligraphy, sing (with others), dance, read a good book, play with poetry, go bowling, play a fun game of volleyball or softball, and watch football, movies or selected Korean drama.
Adam is the Program Coordinator of the LAC. He earned his B.S. in English and M.A. in Second Language Studies. Helping people learn is his passion. He thrives on assisting people in achieving their academic goals, enhancing their writing skills and acclimating to academia. His academic interests include socio-cultural learning, writing instruction, and program evaluation and assessment.
Outside the LAC, he enjoys nature through biking and hiking. He travels more miles on his bike and on the hiking trails than in his car. He relaxes with dining on flavorful foods and trying to duplicate them in his kitchen. He rarely follows a recipe, so every meal he cooks is an experiment. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Taste life!
