I am a co-founder of Kopari and help to oversee product development and marketing initiates. I also have a 17 month old baby girl who keeps me busy when I’m not running around for work. I was born in Hawaii, where coconut is a staple in the culture and I remember collecting coconuts and other tropical fruits to make my own skin and hair treatments at a young age. Years later, I went on to a health-focused culinary school at New York’s Natural Gourmet Institute, which further exposed me to the versatility and health benefits of coconut oil. Even prior to starting the program, I knew that I wanted to launch a product, but I always assumed I’d launch a food product until I had my aha moment with coconut oil. I realized that no other brands were taking advantage of coconut oil for beauty. Seeing that gap in the market, I worked with industry veterans James Brennan, Bryce Goldman and his wife Gigi Goldman to create the industry’s first coconut-powered beauty brand.
