Keiki was born and raised in Mililani, Oʻahu where she spent the majority of her days on the softball field.
Prior to her softball career, she enjoyed dancing hula for Halau Hula Olana and later continued dancing at her high school, Mid-Pacific Institute, under Kumu Michael Casupang.
Keiki graduated from Mid-Pac in 2012 after leading her team to win two state championship titles during her junior and senior year. While in high school, she was recognized as Hawaiʻi’s player of the year and was inducted into the HHSAA Hall of Honor in 2012. Keiki was also recognized twice as the “Gatorade Hawaii Player of the Year” in 2011 and 2012.
Keiki continued her softball career as a Rainbow Wahine at the University of Hawaii, where she played for four years. In 2016, she graduated from UH with a Bachelorʻs of Science in Family Resource Management.
Keiki is a true “people person” – She aspires to be a part of a team that works to serve others. She’s not quite sure what her future holds, whether it’s continuing her education in a master’s program or finding her niche working in the community.
She continues in her passion for softball and giving back to the community by helping coach the Maryknoll varsity softball team, and a couple of summer ball teams. In her spare time, you will find Keiki reading a book, enjoying some sun at the beach, hiking, or spending time with family and friends.
