As a mother of five, Sue Dela Cruz brings her networking and community involvement skills to Blue Zones Project. North Hawaii communities know her by many different names: PTSA lady (State board and Paauilo School board), AYSO coach, region commissioner and area management, Honokaa Jazz Band parent, Honokaa High School soccer mom, Neighborhood Watch coordinator, Laupahoehoe Train Museum docent, health lady (outreach for Hamakua Kohala Health Center), college lady (North Hawaii Education and Resource Center Outreach Specialist) and simply - Patti, Robert, Tony, Andy and Terri’s mom or just aunty! Her expertise lies in her ability to connect with the community, and she owe that to her children. By being involved as they were growing up, she was able to network, build relationships, and connect with all areas in North Hawaii.
