Huliau means a time of change and transformation in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian language). My company name is inspired by my sonʻs Inoa Hawai‘i (Hawaiian name), Kahuliauokamana‘olana meaning the “turning tides of hope.” My strong identity as a Wahine Kanaka (Native Hawaiian Woman) and community builder informs and drives the services I deliver as the owner and principal consultant of Huliau Aloha, LLC. I develop and nurture strong relationships with my clients. My top priority is to always serve the needs and interests of my clients to the best of my ability and to develop a foundation built upon professionalism, transparency, and respect. I bring my whole self to my consulting practice. My experiences working with an array of organizations as a career professional as well as my involvement as a parent to advocate for my son’s education have provided me with a robust and holistic understanding of the needs facing Hawai‘i across sectors from the ground up and from the top down.
