Meet the Team
An avid kiteboarder, triathlete, and boat captain for a whale-watch operation on the Big Island, Kelsey's love for challenge and adventure is a huge part of who she is. "I believe women are capable of anything they put their mind to, and I have tried to exemplify that truth statement in my life." Her heart to help others is ultimately the purpose of her existence, which has been cultivated in her love for Jesus. Although working full time, she believes in giving back to the community, and has served at Heart Ranch and Ho'ola Na Pua here on the Big Island, Hawaii.
Even though life is busy, she still finds time to play and have fun. One of her favorite things to do is taking her dogs for walks at the beach. To Kelsey, "there's nothing like toes in the sand, listening to the ocean, and just BE-ing." @captkelseyhawaii
Joyce grew up with a passion for the arts and design - visual, musical, performance and everything in between. Born in Singapore and raised in Hong Kong and Beijing in international communities, she strongly believes that global awareness and embracing cultural diversity is truly what makes the world go round. "People need people; as American wanderer Chris McCandless said, 'happiness is only real when shared.'"
Joyce appreciates good coffee as much as the next self-respecting designer, and geeks out about color swatches and typography on the regular. When not frolicking with Adobe CS on her trusty iMac or behind her camera shooting landscapes and stars, Joyce can be found freediving around Big Island waters or off traveling the world in search of her next great adventure. @juliettango
Jenna's inspiration in design has always come from the ocean. "I have always loved the water and being the active person that I am has led me to a growing passion for surfing. On the weekends, you can easily find me dangling my legs over my surf board waiting for a wave. In fact, all of my designs tie to the ocean in some way, shape or form."
Tess has lived a majority of her life in Raleigh, North Carolina but was adopted from South Korea. While she has called Raleigh home for most her life, Tess has also spent some time in Orlando, Florida and on the Big Island of Hawaii. Her passions include travel, photography, movies, trying new things and helping others. She has a knack for working with and learning from other people - especially when it comes to problem-solving.
Tess's penchant for helping others and love for people is what drew her to MoiMoi, and she currently represents our MoiMoi aloha on the mainland. When not sipping on a cup of coffee, she can be found running around seeking out her next big project (to-go cup in hand, of course). @tess_mose
After she graduates this spring, Clara looks forward to diving into some kind of work that incorporates her heart and deep compassion for people (TBD..). She hopes to continue to grow and develop her passion for writing as well, and is thrilled to be a part of the MoiMoi team!
