Residency Coordinator

I was born and raised on the Big Island. I started working for Hilo Medical Center in 2012 in the Imaging Department, then went to the outpatient Cardiology Clinic and I am now at the Hawaii Island Family Medicine Residency. I am happy to be part of this wonderful program and enjoy working with all of the staff. When not at work, I like to spend quality time with my family. I absolutely LOVE sushi, but hate rice… go figure, right? Lastly, my greatest accomplishment yet is becoming a mother.
