I also work as a crisis mobile outreach (CMO) contracted through Aloha House under Hawai'i Cares. I love advocacy work which includes Social Workers, Prevention of suicide, bullying, sexual violence, child abuse and neglect, Native Hawaiians, Hawaiian Language, Native Hawaiian Gathering Rights (NHGRA), and other passions that I support.
