“Since 2013, we have had the distinct honor and privilege of volunteering and working alongside UMU. As a nonprofit partner, we see first hand how proper event management can enhance an organization's mission while raising much-needed funds. UMU does that and so much more! Amanda and her amazing team can take any event to the next level, doing it all with class, style, efficiency, and aloha. In addition to their professionalism, our aloha for UMU stems from the passion they have for the community. Their dedication to helping connect people through strategic personal connections allow organizations to fulfill their missions and serve the community. It is this spirit of kuleana that resonates with us and makes us proud to call UMU a partner and friend.”

"We consulted with Amanda and her team to help kick start Hawaiʻi Seafood Month, a month long seafood marketing campaign, bringing together a range of Hawaiʻi’s seafood stakeholders to promote the incredible stories of how local seafood gets from boat to plate. Amanda’s expertise and passion for PR, media outreach, and event planning was especially crucial for the success of our initiative, and we loved her positive, upbeat energy she brought to our team."
