LeeAnn E.P. Silva
LeeAnn oversees development activity on trust land, with primary focus on the island of Hawaii. She also manages all trust real estate assets.
LeeAnn was born and raised on Oʻahu in an extended multi-generational, multi-cultural family. She is a proud product of Hawaiʻi’s public school system, her very first school being Queen Liliʻuokalani Elementary! These early, formative experiences honed LeeAnn’s ability to speak impeccable pidgin English. Her plantation Japanese is pretty good too!
The first in her immediate family to earn a college degree, LeeAnn was fortunate to have done this at the University of San Francisco. Her ‘advanced degree’ is in hula, having spent most of her 20s competing in the Merrie Monarch Festival before retiring from competitive hula at the ripe old age of 30.
Prior to joining the Liliʻuokalani Trust, LeeAnn spent 15 years with Kamehameha Schools Bishop Estate and with Price Waterhouse prior to that.
LeeAnn has been a foster parent and Sunday school teacher (for real – they trust her with kids). True to her multi-generational upbringing, LeeAnn lives with her father and children Luke & Lilia, otherwise known as LeeAnn’s two hearts beating outside her body.
