How did your education at Chaminade contribute to your professional success?
My time in the One-year MBA program has helped to contextualize and prepare me to better manage and address the challenges I see in my everyday role as a Project Manager.
Can you recall a specific moment or experience during your time that had a significant impact on you, either academically or socially?
I recall having “aha” moments during our Accounting and Business Analytics courses. Business Analytics was instrumental in helping me to understand the data infrastructure in my organization and across the construction industry.
How did your education at Chaminade shape your perspective and personal growth?
My Chaminade education reinforced my belief that there is value in all voices if we take the time to engage and learn. I enjoyed learning from and with my classmates in an environment that allows us to push each other towards our goals.
How have you continued to invest in your professional development since graduating?
Unfortunately, I haven’t had the opportunity since taking on my new role at Pacific Resource Partnership. I’m looking forward to continuing my development in the near future.
How has your education influenced your personal goals and achievements?
My Chaminade education has taught me that my short-term goals may not be ambitious enough to match my desired impact and professional trajectory. I am in the process of re-evaluating the impact I can make in Hawaii, and feel better equipped to tackle the challenges our communities are facing.
