I am Native Hawaiian from my dad Michael Doane. His parents Gladys Rego & Waldemar Doane are Hawaiian. My great gma Priscilla Brooks & my great grandparents Maizie Joy & Henry Doane Jr. were Hawaiian.
I attended public school my entire life - Mililani High School and UH Manoa. I have a BBA in Marketing and MIS, a law degree with a Hawaiian Law certificate, and a Masters in Business Administration.
I have worked as a teacher @ Mililani High, a fellow @ Office of Insular Affairs, a claims adjuster @ Geico, a fellow @ Ka Huli Ao, and an OHA Public Policy Advocate & Senior Public Policy Advocate.
Native Hawaiians continue to need strong, educated, passionate, open-minded leaders that can work together to address existing and future challenges and opportunities. Fortunately my generation learned from fearless leaders that came before. I think the upcoming ‘aha is a turning point for our people.
As a result of a strong sense of kuleana I feel to my ‘ohana and my people, I have dedicated my education, career, and personal time to serving Native Hawaiians. In these capacities I have actively advocated for Native Hawaiians at the state and county levels of government to ensure that our interests are advanced and rights are protected. I have also collaborated with strategic partners and allies and have extensive community experience.
I believe our socio-economic conditions, health, education, housing, culture and ‘aina are at stake. I want to be delegate because I know what could happen if we don’t rebuild a Native Hawaiian government and what the potential is if we have a government fighting for our interests and well being.
I hope I’ll have the opportunity to use my education, work experience, and passion for a better future for Hawaiians, to help move our lahui forward.
