The Aloha Chapter was founded in 1982 and became part of the national Alzheimer’s Association in July of 2014. Its mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. The core services of the Alzheimer's Association include information and referral, caregiver education, caregiver counseling, caregiver support groups, community education and outreach, and workforce training.
The Aloha Chapter is headquartered in Honolulu, and serves the islands of Oahu, Maui County, Kauai, and the Big Island. It is estimated that over 2,500 Maui County residents are living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. Nearly 1 in every 3 seniors who dies each year has Alzheimer’s or another dementia. In Hawai’i, a total of 28,000 individuals over age 65 have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s – a statistic that will increase by 35 percent by the year 2025.

My family and I recently relocated to Maui from Austin, TX. I miss tacos, but have hung up my cowgirl hat in favor of all things ocean! I’ve been a nurse for 31 years and have practiced in many areas, most recently school health.
I’ve been a school nurse for 21 years. Prior to school nursing I worked as a home health nurse, and traveled the country working on a maternity floor for a traveling nurse agency. I am excited to join Ohana Care Maui and to be a part of their training program.
