Roen had the arduous task of growing up on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii. She did a lot of the traditional Hawaiian activities like going to the beach, surfing and studying hula dance. She also tapped into her audacious side with more adventurous activities like open sea spear fishing.
She decided to leave the island to attend school and picked Seattle (Seattle University specifically) to study Accounting and was on the school dance team (mostly hip-hop and no hula). Something about Seattle got into her DNA and she gave up the warm trade winds and beautiful sunny beaches of Hawaii for the milder and not so sunny climate of Seattle. Roen makes it a point to return home to Hawaii each year officially to see her family, but, off-the-record, it’s really to eat her mom’s traditional home cooking, have a lunch plate, some poi and poke. So <em>ono</em> (Hawaiian for delicious)! She loves sharing her love of food and her new home of Seattle with visitors and locals alike!
