Over the years I have been fortunate to have some really special mentors influence my life and through them found that is a skill I possessed as well. I have been able to build on that skill set with many opportunities in both my personal and professional development and feel that through Alaka’i Associates I will be able to share and pass on some of the universal lessons I have learned. Most of all, and my biggest lesson, and to whom this work is dedicated, is Jacob Almanza. The rest of you who have helped shape me – I hope you know who you are and I extend my warmest aloha.
