Born in Hawai’i to marine biologist parents, I am that kid who always has to ask questions and always has to try out new things. A qualitative brain that always tries to make things make sense to other people but an appreciator of structure, organization, and order to things. Passionate about the communication and healing process that arts, music, and dance can provide in the healthcare setting and set on trying to figure out how and why artistic expression influences health.
