About Penelope

It is in my nature to be a caregiver and I am very satisfied with the career I choose when I was 10 years old. I communicate well with people from many cultures having lived in Hawaii since 1973. I enjoy seeing my patients and families get benefit from our time together, teaching them, relieving stress and pain, plus finding humor that we can share. I like listening to life stories, making seniors, especially, still feel valued. Most proud personal achievement: I retired early from Leahi to care for my mother during her last several years. We had happy times despite her illness.
