Previous Experience?

I used to work for Villa Roma, a contemporary women’s apparel store, where I began in the stockroom. It was here I realized that business operations appealed to me more than my college major. I worked there for 22 years and rose to the position of business manager. I also worked at Seafood Hawaii, Inc. for 6 years thereafter.

What gets you excited when you wake up in the morning?

I’m a day person, so I naturally get up early no matter what time I go to sleep at night. If not, I feel like I’vewasted part of the day

What would your last meal on earth be?

Eating Kobe beef in Kobe, Japan with my family and as many relatives as possible. I’ve been to Wakkoku and it was outstanding especially because my family and my sister’s family were there too.


Things happen for a reason. Look for the lesson or find the silver lining.
