Aloha! Native to the islands of Hawaii I moved to Arizona eighteen years ago. Married to my best friend for fifteen years, we are a blended family of five, two dogs and a Sun Conure. My husband is a born and raised Phoenician and my most treasured desert gem. Melting our two cultures together is a beautiful adventure that keeps us on our toes. Time with my ohana is most important to me and usually spent hiking, cooking together, board games, movies, or park visits. Growing up in Hawaii our culture’s heart is centered around the “Aloha Spirit”, which is expressed through my family. Hence, why I love working at Hawaiian Experience Spa. My personal experience in the spa is greeting guests, serving a relaxing atmosphere with my spa ohana, and the bonus of listening to Hawaiian music throughout the spa…it takes me back home listening to my uncles kanikapila (music jam session) during family gatherings. Some of my favorite jobs in Hawaii were lei greeter, hula and Tahitian dancer welcoming mainland guests before entering luau’s (Hawaiian party). The spa keeps me in remembrance of the islands.
Some of my achievements involve representing Mrs. New Mexico International 2017. A title to honor the move my parents made to Cloves, NM where I was born on a military base. I utilized my reign to promote my platform as a Domestic Violence and Child Abuse advocate, empowering women of all ages through confidence building and community service. I am also a model and actor featured in local and international commercials. I keep my busy life balanced through self care routines that involve daily activities, drinking lots of water, good night’s sleep, and monitoring stress levels. Working at Hawaiian Experience Spa is in alignment with my life’s balance. I hope your experience in the spa is just as if not more illuminating. See you soon!
