Auntie `Ala

I  grew up in Manoa Valley on Oahu and graduated from Roosevelt High School. I moved to Washington in 1969 after marrying a sailor from Everett. We raised one son and I worked in food service and was a barista for 17 years until my husband passed. I danced hula with Kumuhula Sally Galt for nearly 20 years. So while taking a Hawaiian language class, I learned of the opportunity to co-host with Braddah Gomes and have been doing that for almost 2 years now. Playing Hawaiian music makes me feel closer to home.
