“I grew up in L.A., but I have lived on Maui for over 15 years and worked at Haleakala for nine of those years, as a ranger and for the non-profit park partner.”
Wendy loves to help you experience Maui nature — hiking on a volcano, birdwatching in a cloud forest, and wading in a clear stream. Ask her about the weather, geology, plants, and animals and she’ll be happy to share her mana’o (knowledge, insights), and maybe even improvise a song for you.
She spent three years teaching English in Japan and loves communicating culture through stories and songs.
“I am crazy about islands! The first place I played tour guide was on Alcatraz Island. The first place I worked as a ranger was Crater Lake National Park, with its beautiful Wizard Island. But as they say, ‘Maui no ka ‘oi!’ (Maui is the best!)”
She can’t wait to get behind the wheel of adventure with you!
