Summer K. Keliʻipio


Summer leads the Strategy Team in designing and implementing LT's services to break the cycle of poverty for Native Hawaiian children and families. 

She has fun collaborating with others to solve complex problems, deploy multisector partnerships, and improve the wellbeing of all kamaʻāina.

Summer has worked at Kamehameha Schools, The Queen's Health Systems, the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands and the old McDonald's in Windward Mall. She earned a Bachelor of Arts at Pitzer College in Claremont, California, and a Master in Public Affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University in New Jersey.

On most weekends, Summer, her husband, and their son Haʻamaikaʻi can be found watching at least one University of Hawaiʻi athletic event, sometimes two or three.
