I graduated from Shidler College of Business with a Bachelors degree in MIS and Marketing. I completed an Honors Senior Thesis with a focus in Marketing through the Honors Program at UH Manoa. After graduating, I worked at UH for Sodexo (Manoa Dining Services) for 2 years and currently work at the Girl Scouts of Hawaii as the Product Marketing Coordinator for the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
After obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Biology, I worked for a few years as an academic advisor for the Department of Biology, formerly known as the Biology Program. Wanting to work in healthcare administration, I enrolled in UHM’s MPH and the MBA graduate programs where I learned program assessment and evaluation, social change theories, and bio-statistics. As a graduate student, I gained experience in project management, working with groups, and research design while working at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research. Currently, I manage the Central Billing Office at the University Health Partners, which supports the clinical, educational, research, and community service activities of the University of Hawaii Health sciences – including the John A Burns School of Medicine, and the School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene.
While attending UH Manoa for a B.A. in Sociology with a minor in Political Science, I was a: Resident Assistant (Sophomore year), an intern at Senator Mazie Hirono’s D.C. Office (Junior year), an intern at the Department of the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office (Junior year), as well as a TA for Sociology 100 (Senior year). I worked as a Staff Assistant in Senator Hirono’s Honolulu Office after graduating in the Spring of 2016. I worked there for about a year before starting my current role as a Fund Development Coordinator for Girl Scouts of Hawaii in which I handle fundraising and grant management.
