My career has extended for more than 30 years encompassing the many facets of the hospitality industry. By far my favorite part of the hospitality industry is meeting new people and hearing everyone’s unique stories.
When I am not working, I enjoy archery, a good comedy, the wineries of Temecula and hanging out with family and friends. I am originally from Hawaii, currently residing in Temecula with my husband and our two dogs.
I grew up in San Diego planning my friends' birthday parties, and by the time I was at Occidental College I was running fundraisers and coordinating campus events. After graduation, I knew where my career would go. I became interested in private clubs in particular during my two years at our sister club, the University Club atop Symphony Towers in San Diego, and I am excited to begin a new chapter at Bernardo Heights.
When I am not at work, I volunteer with Junior League of San Diego and work on petitions for Change.org to help animals around the world. I am really looking forward to getting to know the Members and Guests of Bernardo Heights and working to bring their ideas to life!
