why did you choose to raise your children on Maui: ​When I was a child I had an encounter with the whales one day in Maui that changed my life forever. As I swim underneath the waves I could hear them singing and I knew that I wanted to live in the islands for the rest of my life. Giving my son the gift of nature and this beautiful island will teach him integrity and connection with all living things. On a small island it is easy to see your connection and your place in the web of life as well as your own special purpose. I want him to grow up WILD.

what is the best part about being a momma: The best part of motherhood is getting to be the guide for this beautiful being who came to the Earth. I tell him that I don’t know much, but I will teach him everything I have learned and he can choose from there. The love is profound, and gives me so much life. I am learning so much about myself through raising him!

what’s your favorite thing to do as a family: We love to go to the river!

how did being a mom change you: Becoming a mom Has changed me and helped me shift my energy to positive things that make our life easier, because when you have a child you have a lot less free time and because of that want to use it more wisely.

what is one thing you want to teach your children: I want my children to know their compassionate responsibility to this planet and find their path, follow their hearts, live their truth, love themselves and stay WILD.

after exploring Iao Valley, we went to KOKOPELE to hang and explore. KOKOPELE, located on Market St and Vineyard is an organic farm to table Caribeean style food truck and live music venue, community oasis underneath the Banyan Tree. Open M-F 11-6 pm, serving up organic vegetarian food and organic jerk chicken and other Caribbean recipes.
