What led you to where you are today?
Having grown up in Southern California, I was lucky to be exposed to the rich culture and history of the Hawaiian Islands from a young age. I started surfing when I caught my first wave, in Maui, at four years old. Since then, it was always a dream of mine to move to Hawaii. My dream came to realization when I moved to Oahu to attend the University of Hawaii at Manoa. After graduating, I moved to Upcountry, Maui, where my fiancé was born and raised. I began working in the Waste Management industry with a focus on organic waste conversion and landfill diversion. My prior experience has taught me how sustainability is linked to the environment and the social and economic environment. Having this experience has helped me realize the importance of sustainable living within communities and the future of the real estate industry. I believe we can all be a part of creating a sustainable future here in Maui.
