Sally is a free loving person. She has called Hawaii home for 56 years. However, she loves to travel. As each year she’s off visiting the mainland anywhere from one to three months at a time. Over 40 years ago Sally drove visitors around the island of Oahu before starting a career driving the city busses for almost 20 years. At 42 she decided to go back to school. Earning a BA in fine arts and interior design. She then left the islands for a career in New York city. In 2018, Sally decided to come home to Oahu and found herself driving with Private Tours Hawaii.
With her laid-back attitude and easy-going personality, first time visitors become part of Sally's Ohana (the Hawaiian word for "Family"). For returning visitors, not only do they become part of her Ohana, Sally will go out of her way to find local places that they have never seen before.
Sally is happiest when she hears the sound of water. Being it at the beach (which she swims a mile a day) or the sound of rain hitting the roof of her home.
Languages: English, Hawaiian Pidgin.
Sally’s future plans: Always the same...to live each day to it’s fullest. To enjoy all that life throws her way.
