I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii in Waimea, and graduated from Honoka’a High School in 1997.  Raised by my amazing parents Gerald and Mary Kay along with 3 brothers who taught me to be “tough”.

Being an athlete from a young age taught me discipline and determination.  I continued to excel in high school sports and played soccer, basketball and ran cross country. In the 10th grade I was determined to start eating healthy, and made the decision to always live a healthy lifestyle. This is when my interest in weight training began.  I carried this determination with me through college, where I lifted weights 6 days a week, played basketball and club soccer.

Upon returning home from college at Southern Oregon University I became a personal trainer in 2002 at Pacific Coast Fitness.  I have been living and cross training in Kawaihae for the past 14 years. I was first introduced to CrossFit by my close friend and classmate Keoni Subiono and his wife Rose in 2009, who owned CrossFit East Oahu for many years.  I was hooked by CrossFit’s Methodology and wanted more. I am so grateful to Keoni for inspiring me and pushing me to pursue my dream as a gym owner. 

As a wife and a mother of 3, I feel CrossFit has changed my life. I have never felt so healthy and strong. I am excited to get even stronger and healthier as I continue to CrossFit as an athlete. My motivation has always been to be an “example” to my family and friends. I am so blessed and honored to have this opportunity to bring CrossFit Kawaihae to our community. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and support to everyone as I continue to educate myself and get better each day as a CrossFit Coach. We opened in May 2013 and are now almost 7 years as owners of CrossFit Kawaihae. I couldnt be more grateful for all the memories made and wonderful people we have met throughout the years.
