I took the plunge and gave up my 16 year media career to move to the islands to be with my husband. I set up Barefoot to allow me to keep in touch with my clients and projects in Asia. Social Wahines made it so easy for me to get connected with wonderful people in the community and even enabled me to find my fabulous cat-sitter and now dear friend! Kudos Social Wahines ! You rock ! #girlbossesunite

Social Wahines is the perfect forum to brainstorm and network with other like-minded entrepreneurial women who want your success just as much as theirs! This desire to lift up others is truly what sets Social Wahines apart– my experience has been overwhelmingly positive, and I’ve found it to be an ideal group to both get feedback for new business ideas and referrals for products and services I need. Highly recommend!


I love Social Wahines because it fosters an engaging place where I can make new friends, have fun and grow my business. I’ve been able to network with amazing women across Hawaii who have shared their knowledge and genuinely inspired me to think big. As an entrepreneur, I am always looking to connect with other business leaders who challenge me to think differently, push me out of my comfort zone, and help me uncover solutions to overcome my obstacles. I have found all of that and more through Social Wahines.
