I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hi. I attended Star of the Sea from Pre-K to 8th grade graduating middle school with the class of 2006. I then went on to graduate from Iolani High School. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and History from California State University, Northridge. I am currently pursuing a Master of Education from the University of Phoenix.

Along with teaching I enjoy playing and coaching volleyball. I played Division 1 volleyball while at Cal State Northridge, and I have been the assistant coach at Hawaii Pacific University for the last two years. Pervious to that I coached at Punahou and various high schools and volleyball clubs throughout the island.  When I am not teaching or coaching I love being at the beach or outdoors, especially tending to my aquaponic systems. I believe in lifelong learning and exploring new adventures. I hope to inspire my students to be just as curious about the world around them and to enjoy learning as much as I do.

This school has given so much to me, not only a great education but a loving and caring community to learn and grow in. I am so happy to be back at Star of the Sea and to be able to continue to provide the same for the next generation of students.

As we prepare for the 2020/21 school year, the safety and health of our ohana is our #1 priority.  See our Back to School Plan of Action for our in-person learning starting Monday, August 3, 2020.
