My husband Evan and I own a surf school here in Hanalei called Hanalei Surf School that keeps us very busy. I am also an esthetician at a space in Hanalei called On&On. I get to work with incredibly potent plant based product lines, including Activist Manuka. Most importantly I spend time with our 5 year old daughter Jaya Moon and our dog Rama. In my free time I surf, kick box, and practice yoga.
I am passionate about educating people on the importance of growing your own vegetables, fruits and herbs. It’s important to know what you are eating and consuming. We are what we eat!
Lately my daily routine has been starting with a barefoot run on the beach. I try to go really early – both to miss the crowds and to catch the sun as it wakes up the ocean and the sand. I feel super charged by the ocean and where I can only run a bit on the sidewalk, I can run forever on the sand with the ocean lapping at my feet.
DIY skills I want to learn are raising a confident child, homeschooling, languages, mycoremediation, the power of plants and planets, and so many more.
I feel closest to nature when I am surfing. But when I am far from the ocean or in an environment without traditional natural spaces I like to remind myself that the touch of my skin is as close to nature as anything.
Personal values I believe in are listening always; never skimp on reflections of gratitude, and always keep busy – just enough.
