I was born and raised in Kaneohe, Hawaiʻi, before enlisting the U.S. Coast Guard in 2008. It was there I began my journey as a public affairs specialist after receiving training through the U.S. Army's Defense Information School. In 2014 I left active duty, but continued my service in the Coast Guard Reserves, while completing a degree in Communication Studies at San Francisco State University. Upon graduating, I returned to active duty on temporary orders before moving home and joining the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
