Just over four and a half years.
What do you do at Islands Hospice?
I work as a DCSA, helping the DCS and supporting the field staff. I also fill in and make nursing/aide visits as needed to ensure coverage. I cover one week a month as the Administrator on Call for the evenings and weekends.

I work in the office to support the field staff in order for them to care for our patients. I take care of the ordering of supplies, assist with auditing, and occasionally cover field nurse or CNA visits if there’s a need.
Have you held any other positions here?

I grew up here on Maui and attended Maui Community College for nursing school. I have been an LPN for 18 years now. I have an 8-year-old daughter who keeps me on my toes. I took a break from nursing for a few years and got a degree in Early Childhood Education and worked as a preschool teacher for a while but found my way back to nursing when I started at Islands Hospice almost 5 years ago.

I have always had a passion for working with the elderly and sick. Hospice was new to me when I started at Islands Hospice but I truly enjoy the work that we do
