What would you be doing if you weren’t working at INPAC?

I fell in love with Japan when I visited in 2014. If I weren’t working for INPAC, I’d love to spend most of my time there. However, if I wasn’t working at INPAC, I’m sure my life would be mundane.

I love helping our clients live out their dreams. The only reason why I wouldn’t be at INPAC would be if I chose to retire. I’m a workaholic, though, so I know I’ll always work in some capacity.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

The best advice I ever received was from a life coach who is now one of my great friends: “Life is like a wheel of balance — each spoke represents physical, spiritual, financial, family and community balance.”

Life can be busy. It’s so easy to get caught up on just one aspect of life and let the others suffer or fall short. Trying to create a balanced wheel in all areas of life can help make life more fulfilling. However, creating that balance is easier said than done.

Realizing that everyone is human helped the entire INPAC ohana become better planners because it’s not always about the numbers — it’s about our clients’ wheels and how we can make the most out of each spoke.

Why do you do what you do?

I got familiar with the concept of “being in business” while growing up in the family fish business on Kauai. Only now have I really come to understand the true meaning of being in a business that is worth being in. There is something so fulfilling about designing wealth plans that allow our clients to enjoy every stage of life.

What do you love most about being a part of INPAC?

What I love most about INPAC is the small, close-knit family culture within the office. Everyone works well together, and we all know that each and every one of us has an impact on our clients’ lives.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about having new experiences and constantly learning more about myself. Every year, I travel with my family to different places around the world to experience new cultures and cuisine.

Why do you do what you do?

I love helping people. As Zig Ziglar once said, “You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” It’s amazing to me that I get to help people reach their financial goals, and along the way, I get to raise a family and build a spectacular life and network in Hawaii.

What do you feel most grateful for in life?

I feel most grateful for all of the blessings in my life. I’m fortunate to have a house to call home, a rewarding job at INPAC and my best friends and co-workers. Most of all, however, I’m blessed to have my family. My husband, Dave, son, Brayden, and daughter, Taira, have taught me the greatest lessons in life. They challenge me to always be the best me that I can be!

What do you love most about being a part of INPAC?

I love being part of a great team that works tirelessly to get the job done! Meeting and getting to know what clients strive for is the best. Our INPAC culture is unique — professionally fun and family-oriented!

What are you most passionate about?

I’m passionate about living with a purpose! Becoming a mom and wife at 20-years-old has taught me the importance of patience, balance and perseverance. It has also taught me to live life to the fullest with a positive attitude — doing everything in love and kindness and truly believing that everything happens for a reason!
