A little more about me

My hometown

Pahoa, Hawaii

What excites you most about being a Business Development Officer?

My amazing team and I help members tackle their financial challenges. We provide a safe space to be real about money. I can’t think of anything more fulfilling than helping people turn their ‘impossible’ to ‘possible.’

Do you have a favorite money tip to share?

No matter the type of financial journey you are on, you need an emergency savings. An emergency savings helps you get through those unexpected things that creep up in life. We recommend saving at least $1000, then working up to 3 months’ worth of expenses. Every little bit can help you with that unexpected flat tire or an emergency vet visit. Having an emergency savings provides peace of mind for the “what-ifs” in life and eventually that habit of saving for emergencies may turn into the habit of saving for other goals.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I love spending my free time with my family: my spouse and my two dogs. I am a craft-aholic who enjoys do-it-yourself projects. I also enjoy helping my younger sister with her boutique and online sales.
