Born and raised in Hawaii, Steph has grown to love the culture, the food, and the beauty of the islands. Steph has been very fortunate to be an Iolani School and University of Hawaii at Manoa graduate – meeting people from all walks of life. After earning her Master’s of Education in Teaching, Steph reached out to youth while teaching in the classroom with Hawaii Public Education system for a number of years.
Her mother, being a mortgage broker, exposed her to the real estate and mortgage industries from her high school days. Her passion for meeting new people and making a difference in the lifestyles of her clients drives her to be the best real estate agent she can be, with Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties.
I am proud to say that even realtors have a life outside of work – sometimes they do intertwine 😉 Steph is a big foodie (both home cooking/baking/grilling and restaurant explorers) and tech junkie. She loves to spend time with her husband and their dog, Lucky. She is an BSF student and atteneds Central Union Church.
Steph loves to read Asian-American literature (Authors like Lisa See, Leslie Li, Amy Tan, etc.). She absolutely LOVES the smell of Coffee at any time of day (in fact, she use to be a barista at Starbucks). She also tends to her little lanai garden, growing strawberries, lemon grass, tomatos, dill, basil, green onion, etc.
She hopes, in the near future to:
– get back to playing the violin (from her grade school days, she played the violin for 10+ years, with the priviledge of performing at Carnegie Hall in New York)
– get back to paddling again (she made it to paddle in the varsity crew in high school, paddled for Healani in the Regatta season previously)
