My father descends from Kahapea and Keka (moku `o Hawai`i) and Imaikalani (Kaua`i) and Weike (Molokai). My mother was born Apiki (moku o Hawai`i).
Bachelors of Science in Business Management and a Juris Doctor from the University of Hawai`i, William S. Richardson School of Law. I also receive training year-round on child welfare related issues.
7 years in Child Welfare Law: First, as a Graduate Assistant; now, as a Law Fellow at Kapolei Family Court in the Child Welfare Project. I assist with project development, maintenance and evaluation.
For the last four years, I have worked closely with Hawai`i's Department of Human Services, Child Welfare Services Branch, and the First Circuit Family Court. I provide support to maintain several court projects, e.g., the Ho`olokahi Parent Facilitator Program, Hawai`i Zero to Three Court, Permanency Court, and `Oahu Child Welfare Medication Program. I assisted the Court Improvement Program in its evaluation of family court judges, revision of the CWS Benchbook for family court judges, and planning of various trainings for legal professionals and CWS staff. I assisted CWS with developing, implementing and maintaining the Imua Kakou -Young Adult Voluntary Foster Care Program by helping develop procedures and legal forms to achieve Title IVE compliance; revise existing procedures and legal forms; to plan for and facilitate regular meetings and teleconferences to maintain and monitor the program and answer questions, and maintain federal program compliance by conducting case reviews. I also provided input to revise existing child welfare laws and CWS procedures and am assisting CWS with the Annual Progress and Services Report. My assistance will be meaningful in this effort as well.
