Maui Corner- Get to know our Maui Team
Posted on May 14, 2020
How long have you worked at Islands Hospice?
A little over a year.
What do you do at Islands Hospice?
My role is to evaluate patients and provide support and comfort to patients and families throughout this difficult time in their lives.
Describe a typical workday
I visit four to six patients daily, evaluate their needs, and coordinate care with our hospice team, plus lots and lots of charting.
What is your favorite part about working at Islands Hospice?
I love the flexibility of my daily schedule.
Do you have any special memories/stories from your time working here?
Every family leaves a special memory in my hard drive; all are equal whether good or bad. One thing I will never forget though, is visiting a patient one mile into the cane field. Not special but absolutely memorable.
Tell me about yourself. Where did you grow up? What is your background?
I was born and raised on Maui. I graduated from Baldwin High School in 1994 and graduated nursing school in 2010. I am married with three children (two adults and a 15-year-old), two grandchildren, and another on the way.
Is there anything about your background that inspired you to work at Islands Hospice/in hospice care?
Nothing in particular inspired me to work in hospice care, but I am grateful that faith has brought me here.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love chilling at the beach with my family, watching movies and retail therapy.
Is there anything else you want to share with your fellow colleagues?
I just want my fellow colleagues to know that I appreciate them and love working here at Islands Hospice.
