Anuhea was born and raised in Kealakekua, and graduated from Konawaena High School in 2011.
A huge part of her upbringing was tied to the values and lessons learned on Wall Ranch. Anuheaʻs father, Chance Wall, grandfather Allen Wall, and uncle Roy Wall worked the land and raised cattle. Their work always reflected the utmost respect and grattitude for the ʻāina.
After high school, Anuhea attended school and played basketball at Pacific University Oregon. There she earned her Bachelorʻs degree in Psychology and then her Master’s degree in Social Work. She spent two more years in Oregon working as a Therapist and Program Coordinator at Ophelia’s Place (OP). Her experience at OP was grounded in the empowerment, education, and support of adolescent girls. Her favorite part of the job was facilitating groups and developing curriculum specifically for girls of color.
Finally, in 2019, Anuhea returned to Kona to be closer to family and serve the community that nurtured her. She was ecstatic to accept a position with LT as the mission of the organization was in alignment with her personal values and passion for working with youth.
In her free time, Anuhea enjoys going to the beach, spoiling her nephews, spending time with family, and playing basketball and volleyball.

Do you see the wind?
No, it is not seen
You see its effects only.
You do not see the thing itself.
