KUKUI has been adding to the team, and we'd love for you to meet our newest recruits!
Favorite Movie: The Dark Knight and The Princess Bride
Favorite thing to do in your free time: Spend time with family, hiking, visit wineries/breweries, crochet
Favorite KUKUI LEAD value: Enthusiasm - As I am learning the industry, products and the company, I greatly appreciate the enthusiasm that everyone comes with and how helpful it has been for me to get up to speed quickly.
Best Childhood memory: No specific moment, but being able to run around outside until the street lights came on, playing tag, football, soccer and softball.
Favorite quote or phrase: Never give up something you really want. It's difficult to wait, but more difficult to regret.
Favorite Movie: Using the criteria of which movie I've watched the most in the last few weeks, let's go with Frozen II. At any given point in time, there's probably a 75% chance that one of the songs from that movie is playing on repeat in my head or being sung on repeat by my daughters.
Favorite thing to do in your free time: I love going to playgrounds, on nature walks, and bike rides with my husband and kiddos (Amelia 5 and Penelope 2).
Favorite KUKUI LEAD value: Love. Loving what you do and the team you work with makes it easier to live out the other values.
Best Childhood memory: I grew up in a suburb of Rochester, NY and one summer in middle school, all the neighborhood kids took wood and nails from construction sites of houses being built and we all made these amazing forts in a small wood next to our neighborhood. It was one of those idyllic summers where all the kids were out playing from dawn till dusk and we build some really elaborate forts, complete with bridges.
Favorite quote or phrase: This is very random but a quote from Hope Floats (Sandra Bullock movie from the 90s, which I've not seen in probably 20 years) popped in my head last week as I said goodbye to the company I worked at for 13 years and prepared to start at Kukui - "Beginnings are hard. Endings are usually sad. But it's the middle that counts."
Favorite Movie: Kingsman
Favorite thing to do in your free time: I enjoy playing the guitar.

Best Childhood Memory: My favorite childhood memory was when I got to see my father compete in the Hawaii Ironman World Championship.
