Sharon was raised near Philadelphia as one of six children from a working
class family. Neither of her parents attended college, however they always
stressed the importance of education for their children. After receiving
her undergraduate degrees in marketing and philosophy from the University
of Pittsburgh, Sharon moved to Hawai‘i where she continues to be
inspired by the people: their multiculturalism, community and diversity.
Sharon also strives to lead her life with the values of scholarship, service,
and leadership as a member of the Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority.
She served for four years on the national board of directors.
Sharon chooses to work for values-driven organizations where the primary
focus is serving others. In her previous roles, she helped those most
in need in our community and supported our military and their families.
After dedicating time to focus on her family, Sharon fulfilled her dream
of becoming a lawyer to help others navigate the complex legal system
and solve their real-life problems.
Sharon attended the evening, part-time program at the University of Hawai‘i
William S. Richardson School of Law, while still working full-time and
raising her daughter. She participated in the award-winning Hispanic Moot
Court team and worked as an extern for Volunteer Legal Services Hawai‘i
and Hawai‘i Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark E. Recktenwald. After
graduating cum laude in December 2015, Sharon served as a law clerk to
Hawai‘i Intermediate Court of Appeals Associate Judge Alexa D.M. Fujise.
Sharon is excited to have the opportunity to help others during challenging
situations in their lives through her practice. In her spare time, Sharon
enjoys practicing yoga, jiu jitsu, and paddling. She lives in Kailua with
