About Yvonne

My upbringing in Hawai'i and my nomadic life in the US colors my world. I am passionate about using design as a problem solving tool,  motivated by a love of progress, and empowered by the desire to gain and share knowledge.


'alawa is a Hawaiian word that means to glance. It also means a knowing glance, or to diagnose by insight. It was a word I saw frequently for 30 years and has been a theme of my professional life.
