In 1969 I walked down the steps of my first Trans Pacific flight and onto Oahu. I was awed. The warm gentle breezes and swaying palm trees made me feel as though I had landed in Paradise.
I attended U.H. classes for a while and learned to surf. Life was wonderful for this 19 year old. When it came time to return to the mainland I began a career as a Realtor-Associate in Iowa. I loved showing properties and working with buyers and sellers. It seemed as though I had found my niche. Except for the mid-west which was COLD. I dreamt of burning white sands for eight winters until finally I packed up and returned to the islands. I always knew I would come back to Hawaii.
In 1981 Hawaii became my permanent home. Soon after I was hired as the recreational director for the children on American Hawaii Cruise Lines. I married in 1984 and had our only child, a son, in 1986. When our son John started pre-school I was again in the workforce. This time I signed on as an account-executive for Hawaii Business Magazine. I enjoyed working with advertising and marketing in the 80s and early 90s.
By the mid 90s I decided to put my cooking talents to the test and began a business called "Italian Sistahs" with, who else, my sister, specializing in gourmet Italian-Hawaiian foods. By 2000 my hands were feeling the strain of the physical work. I decided to try my first love -real estate.
In 2001 I studied, tested and received my Hawaii Real Estate License. I've been associated with Hawaiian Island Homes Ltd. since then and I can't help getting excited about selling properties. I have found the best place in the world to live.
I love to hike and swim. I am a lector at my church, Star of the Sea, and I get involved in my community through volunteerism. I love my work and look forward to many years to come with Hawaiian Island Homes Ltd.
