Aloha Kakou!

I earned a PhD in Public History and Resource Management, with a teaching field in COmparative World History in 2005.  I continued to teach, research and write as a lecturer in the History Departments  of California State University, Fullerton and Mount San Antonio College until December 2015. Annually and Bi-Annually, I attended history and leadership conferences during which I present current research.

While a Lecturer I also served as the lecturer representative for the California Teacher's Association and formed the Lecturer's Council at Fullerton. I served on the Chapter and State wide boards as well as on the Faculty Rights and Membership Committees.

In January of 2016 I left my lecturing positions to make my home in Keaukaha, Hilo, Hawaii after initally leaving the islands to pursue my educaiton in 1996. I have spent the last sixteen months transitioning my two youngest children, Kekoa and Kaia 'Iolana into Hawaiian Immersion School and getting to know our community through participation in various activities and events such as paddling, hula and conservation initiatives as well as researching and writing about local concerns and issues. You may learn more about these activities in the following pages.
