About Colleen Lasham
My young adult-self found me working as a hostess in several of the hotels and restaurants here in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii when… surf was not up! I gained valuable experience in management and the kitchens after I met my Food and Beverage Director husband. For some years, I helped him open new restaurants on Oahu, Maui, and Kauai, the island where my daughter was born. No matter what, we always, always came back to our home on the Kona Coast.
My daughter was eight when I lost my husband to cancer. Alone to support my girl and my mother, I went into Real Estate. I worked in Real Estate Sales, Association Property Management, Escrow, Title, and Mortgage Brokerage. My career in Real Estate has resulted in expertise helpful not only to those wishing to purchase property or relocate here to Hawaii but also for those wishing to visit and vacation in the islands.
Nine years later, I was stunned that another great love managed to find me. Life with a successful oilman and avid outdoorsman swept me into a whirlwind of travel, much of it international, as I became a 1K flyer with him for 17 years. He taught me much of politics and finance, he taught me to ski and golf, and I accompanied him as he hunted big game all around the world. My small-town eyes were opened so that I gained a much broader understanding of our world, the different peoples living in it, and ways to read the signs that indicate how the future of our world might be unfolding. He also taught me how to fly that many miles and live through it!
Now? I live with my daughter, my baby granddaughter, our 4lb Yorkie, Ipo, and Kai, our 75lb Doberman. Throw in 4 cats and a few chickens, and that's us. I spend my days caring for them and writing my customized, original content as a website content writer… when surf is not up!
