Mandy was born & raised in the small town of Hilo, before she ventured to Japan for school. From Japan, she moved to Florida for an internship at Walt Disney World, which turned into an 11-year career. Mandy graduated from Valencia College in Hospitality & Event Management, and later left Walt Disney World as a Resort Manager to return to her roots to start her family in her hometown of Hilo. She’s currently a mom-trepreneur, a stay at home mom who runs her own handmade jewelry and gems business out of her home. You can find Mandy enjoying food (cooking and eating), traveling, art, animals, and spending time with her family in her spare time. Since creating things and building relationships are important aspects of her life, being a linker is a perfect fit!
Mandy loves Lakuna Links because it’s a creative outlet and opportunity to connect with amazing people. Not to mention, the ability to support another women-owned small business!
