What prompted you to join MPI?
I was one of the original members at the inception of the MPI Aloha Chapter. I had been a member of MPI for years and wanted to support the local chapter.

What do you hope to gain from being a member?
I like having a structured forum where people can get together and network in a business but casual environment. We all learn from each other. The enthusiasm from the younger members energizes me!

How long have you been in the industry , what led you to this profession?
I started as a flower lei greeter in 1973, 40 years ago. I was 16 years of age! I had to make some money so I worked for $2.10 per hour meeting charter flights from Canada.

What are your interests, hobbies, ways that you spend your free time?
I like to plan family gatherings, go shopping and lunching with my friends, and attend athletic games of all types. Did I say that I enjoy a cocktail now and then?
