Legislative Staff in Honolulu, Hawaii

Hawaii's largest multi-billion dollar industry? State government. As a legislative fiscal analyst, I look at how over $14 billion is budgeted statewide and help lawmakers make informed spending decisions.

Born and raised in Waipahu and Pearl City, I earned a BA in Public Policy from Stanford University with Goldman Honors in Environmental Science, Technology, and Policy for my thesis on collaborative water resources management and policy in the Yakima River Basin.

A social impact fellowship in the Philippines sparked my interest in social ventures, design thinking, and specialty coffee.

Before starting at the Capitol in 2019, for three and a half years I worked in community outreach for U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI) in Honolulu.

Got the itch for creative writing along the way, so I'm concurrently working toward an MFA at Pacific Lutheran University's Rainier Writing Workshop.

I'm also the 2019 Secretary for the Hawaii Filipino Junior Chamber.
