Marilyn demonstrates extraordinary commitment to her team and to the Maui community. She is a leader who manages the breakfast operation on the line as well as the main spokesperson on behalf of the culinary team. During the pandemic, Marilyn showed her compassionate and generous nature by donating a portion of the Hawaii Restaurant Card she received from the state which was distributed to those on unemployment and impacted by COVID-19.
Marilyn did not think twice to contact a local Food Truck to sponsor Kupuna (elder) Meals! Each year Marilyn volunteers in the Kupuna Holiday Dinner, where she will not only prepare the food she will also invest her time and money in creating magnificent and memorable festive centerpieces for the guests to bring home. Marilyn loves to share her culinary passion and experiences with the students on Career Day at the local elementary school, Kihei Elementary and has been presenting to the students year after year. Marilyn is a remarkable role model and pleasure to have on our culinary team.
Her superpower: Marilyn’s superpower is that she is 100% selfless – she is humble and will always put others first, she is generous and considerate and loves to serve her family and community. She is a single mother of 3 and during her spare time watches her grandchildren.”
