I was born on Oahu at Kapiolani Medical Center. I was a pre-mature baby!
I was raised on Kaua’i. I lived in Kapa’a, Hanamaulu, and now I reside in Lihue.
I graduated from Kaua’i High School in 2015.
I was interested in the medical field when I was a Freshman in high school. I sprained my ankle in my first high school soccer game and when I went to my follow up appointments in the clinic, I was so intrigued by all the nurses and doctors and how they treated each patient. That’s when I knew I wanted to be in the medical field. I wanted to be involved in the patient’s health in hopes to make a positive impact in their lives. It’s such a privilege to be able to help people when they need it the most.
I learned that there are so many diagnoses for the eye and I also didn’t realize how important an eye exam really is and how it can affect someone’s health.
My close friends and family know this about me but I LOVE Avocados! I try to limit myself to one avocado a day!
As of right now, I want to do a road trip in a RV from Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. I want to hike all the National Parks!
My ideal Sunday off would definitely be sleeping in and then if I have the motivation, I would go on a short run or go to the gym. After, my family and I would pack up the canopy and the food and go to the beach on the westside and stay there till sunset.
– My AMAZING coworkers!
– The different patients I get to see, as well as some familiar faces.
– I also love the fast-paced environment.
A goal I want to achieve before 2020 ends would be to do something active each day, even if it’s just walking around my neighborhood. I tend to be lazy and tired during the week, so I want to be able to change my mindset by the end of the year.
“Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.” With everything going on this year, I feel like we all need to accept the constant changes that are happening in our lives whether it’s in our personal life or as a community. All we can do is grow and learn from them.
