Each Monday, executive director Sheri Daniels introduces the staff of Papa Ola Lōkahi. Today, we feature two of our newest members, both students in public health: Chevelle Davis (L) and Asia Olivieri (R).
Chevelle is born and raised on the Leeward side of O‘ahu in Ewa Beach and a graduate of ‘Aiea High School. She graduated from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa with her bachelor’s degree in Public Health and is currently in her second year of the Master of Public Health program focusing on Health Policy and Management. Chevelle intends to pursue her PhD in Public Health and earn a certificate in Public Administration next fall. Chevelle joined the Native Hawaiian Health Scholarship Program (NHHSP) ‘ohana in September and is honored to be able to contribute to Hawaiians pursuing higher education in health care fields. When Chevelle is not working or studying, she enjoys spending time with her family or island hopping with friends. Chevelle also enjoys international travel and experiencing different cultures.
Asia was raised in Kailua and graduated from Punahou. Asia feels privileged to have the opportunity to be a part of the E Ola Mau a Mau process and to work with such a welcoming ‘ohana. Through this experience, Asia realized she loves to work in health and public policy. She is currently completing her Bachelor's in Public Health at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. She already plans to attain a Master's in Business Administration followed by a PhD in Public Health. When Asia is not working or completing school work, she can be found playing with her dogs, volunteering for ‘āina-restoration projects, or discovering new restaurants.
