Dr. Kiona was born in Hawai’i and manages her own homes in Austin, Dallas, and Cuba. She received multiple degrees from The University of Texas, becoming the first doctor in her family. During her 12 years of academia, she took many mental health breaks in the form of travel, leading her to rent out her house while she was away and eventually making it a business that would be Hosts2Go. After her tenant at university, she decided to start her own education platform, which is what she does full-time today. Her passion is finding new off-the-beaten-path places to explore and making friends abroad.
