Born and raised in Honolulu Hawaii, Malia has a lifelong passion for outdoor sports and adventure. She’s always been driven to help others achieve health and wellness in their own lives, earning a PhD in Clinical Health Psychology from the University of Illinois. She pursued clinical health research in both the Chicago, San Francisco and Hong Kong before recently returning to Hawaii with her husband and 2 children.
When she’s not working with Kenzai trainees, Malia volunteers with the Women’s Fund of Hawaii securing grants for community initiatives empowering women and girls. In her free time, you can find Malia digging deep with her ocean canoe paddling team, hiking the volcanoes and craters of Hawaii, or participating in marathons and ultramarathons around the world.
On less active days, Malia loves to cook fresh food for her family and friends, do the NYT crossword, and weave intricate hawaiian “haku” leis with plants and flowers from her own backyard.
