I have worked in early childhood education for over 15 years. I've moved from the classroom to direct administration and most recently I serve as support for our Community Based Early Childhood Education Divisional Director as an Educational Initiatives Manager. I continue to enjoy my work in early childhood education, and most recently in the capacity of supporting over 1500+ children across the State of Hawai'i. A small town girl who loves to learn more, discover new ideas, and look at things differently–"ouside of the box" mentality.
