We Continue our Meet Us Mondays by introducing Nicole Oka, who will be joining the policy and communications teams here at Papa Ola Lōkahi.
Born and raised in Hawaiʻi, Nikki is passionate about uplifting a thriving lāhui through a multifaceted approach. She comes to POL with experience across a number of sectors, including affordable housing, finance, food security, and legislative policy. Nikki is also passionate about mindful travel; prior to the pandemic, she took a year to travel and volunteer while loosely following King Kalākaua's 1881 circumnavigational tour route. In her free time, she likes to kilo, hana noʻeau, and work on zero-waste projects.
