With a hugely successful private practice, Anna-Maria has advanced her dreams with the formation E' olu'olu and strategically teaming with the Specialized Services Group, LLC, a Native Hawaiian company. Through this partnership, Anna-Maria hopes to further her goals of working with--or formulating--specialized programs for Native Hawaiians, Veterans, and/or their families. "Ohana" (family) is the core of any individual and we often overlook the tremendous sacrifice and burdens placed on Native Hawaiian families and the families of our Veterans. In working with existing programs and looking at areas where we can enrich, expand, or create further growth and success, E olu'olu strives to help initiate change with the Native Hawaiian and Veteran communities.
