Nalani Kaai

Nalani Kaai was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, but now resides in Kāneʻohe alongside the beautiful Ko’olau mountain range.

She earned her B.S. in Sociology with a minor in Social Work at Pepperdine University in 2021, and her MSW at the University of Hawaiʻi, Thompson School of Social Work, in 2023.

She is passionate about working with makua and kamaliʻi to help strengthen their pilina to one another and to their cultural roots. She envisions that this work will not only encourage the Queen’s vision of uplifting our kamaliʻi but will also empower our ʻohana to heal and thrive together.
