Mary was born and raised in Honolulu, on the island of Oahu. She graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a B.A. in Biology.
Mary is actively involved in various organizations on our campus. She is currently serving as Vice President of Phi Lambda Sigma, A.L.O.H.A. Project Chair, Ho’omalu Ola Committee Co-Chair of the Phi Delta Chi Professional Pharmacy Fraternity, Rho Chi Quiz Bowl Chair, and is a student representative on the Curriculum Committee. She is also an active member of the American Pharmacists Association-The Academy of Student Pharmacists, and the Hawaii Student Society of Health Systems Pharmacy.
She chose to attend the DKICP because of the supportive environment the upperclassmen and faculty create to facilitate learning both on campus and in the community. When she is not studying, she enjoys building puzzles, painting, and reading thriller novels.
