Happy Hawaiian Runner


Paris, France (2017)

I am known as Hawaiian Girl in the running community; Happy Hawaiian Runner is my way of sharing my story. I am a survivor. Instead of letting my past dictate my life, I learned how to live. By sharing my story I hope to inspire individuals to live life in a positive light. I live in Orange County, California with my son. I live the life of an active, busy single mom; between my job, being a law student, training, plus my son’s school stuff and his own extra circular activities, my days are carefully planned. I have my personal goals, and I’ve got dreams that I am working toward to make them come true. I want to travel the world, and see all of its beauty, to see history, to experience and discover new places. My hope is that you are inspired to get out there to accomplish your goals, to chase your dreams. Its all about you, and you do it for nobody but yourself.

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
