My Family

Cinque Terra, Italy 2017

Mike and I have been married for 26 years.  We met on a blind date in Seattle back in Feb. 1991 and were married only 7 months later.  We moved to southern California in early 1992 and have been here ever since.  Mike has been in the seafood industry since he was 17 years old.  His first job was throwing fish at Pikes Place Market. Since then, he has worked his way up the seafood ladder and is now an importer of fresh fish from all over the world, most specifically South America, Iceland  and New Zealand.  He holds a BA in theology, an MA in Ethics, and a PHD in metaphysics.  I  am so grateful for this man.

Jordan Shaenoa, is my oldest boy at 29 years old.  I was a single mom for two and a half years before I met and married Mike.  He was born in Hawaii.  We moved to Seattle in 1989 when he was a year old, because at the time I was a flight attendant with Hawaiian Airlines and was based there.  Jordan is an intuitive and driven  leader and is currently the southern California distribution  manager for Treasury Wines  He loves a great time,  and has been a Seattle Seahawks fan since he was 3 years old.  He also loves all superhero movies and often thinks he is one.



Justin Daniel Kaleialii is 24.  This quiet, very compassionate soul….dreams of one day becoming a free lance writer.  He pays his bills by moonlighting as a bartender in an upscale restaurant in Long Beach, CA.  He is an avid sports fan and loves both the Seahawks and the Mariners.  He enjoys working out and can hold his own in the kitchen,  cooking.  He doesn’t like superhero movies but prefers to watch every episode of Sports Center and Baseball Tonight on ESPN.

Graduate from the University of Hawaii

Jillian Victoria Ula’okalani  is my youngest at 22  years old.  She recently graduated from the University of Hawaii with her BA in Political Science and Government.   She loves the island life, which is so much different than the southern California life.  I have said that she is the island girl that I never was growing up in Hawaii.  She has embraced the culture, the people, food and the Hawaiian language.  She is not only beautiful but free spirited, independent and loves the beach and hiking.  She will remain on the island until starting law school in the fall of 2018.
