I am a strong advocate for our public school system, striving to ensure a

healthy learning and working environment for students, teachers, and staff. I
believe in a strong early education for all keiki, from preschool on up, to

give students a jumpstart and create engaged learners who are prepared for and
eager to achieve higher education. I consistently vote to support school
funding and reduce the teacher-to-student ratio.

In my support of UH faculty, I supported the establishment of the John A.
Burns School of Medicine, served as a UH Manoa Legislator in Residence, and
participate regularly in the WSRSL’s annual Moot Court.

As a member of the UH family, I work hard to support its faculty and
students, and am very honored to receive UHPA’s endorsement.
