Healing Hawai`i One Step at a Time
Healing Hawai`i One Step at a Time

Education &Degrees

I started out at a small college known as West Hawai`i Community College, now known as Palamanui.  I wanted to stay on Hawai`i island to finish my Bachelors and graduated with a Biology degree with emphasis in cell and molecular biology at University of Hawai`i at Hilo.  Last, after my journey to the NIH/NIAID, I decided to enter the School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene at University of Manoa and completed a BSN and MSN as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
