My favorites thing about HawCC/West Hawaii Center… is the people. The faculty, staff, and students make it a true pleasure to work here.

My hobbies and interest are… being outdoors (walking, biking, camping); raising our happy, healthy keiki; listening to poetry; traveling; and finding balance in this busy life.

If you came to visit my office you would see… our cozy shared English department office and myself catching a quick chat with my terrific colleagues in between classes.

I like the Big Island because … of places like Makalawena and Waipunalei and because of the many people who have become our ohana over the last 16 years. I love the feeling that there will always be more to learn and explore.

In my free time I like to… I like to spend time with my husband and kids and keep in touch with far-flung family and friends.
