  • The Team

    Malia Molina, Analyst

    A new addition to the company, Malia is excited to work with the Munekiyo Hiraga team and learn more about the planning field. Born and raised on Maui, Malia is a graduate of Kamehameha Schools Maui. After high school, she traveled across the country to attend school at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. Interested in Environmental Studies, Malia spent a few of her summers at the University of Michigan where she conducted research under a professor focusing on a sustainability education initiative and also worked for a local Michigan land conservancy. Though she is passionate about the intersection between environmental and social issues, languages and human cognition have also fascinated her and in 2018, she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics with a minor in Cognitive Science from Carleton College.

    While studying at Carleton College, Malia would return home to Maui for school breaks and spent a few of those breaks as an intern at Munekiyo Hiraga. As an intern, Malia worked on Environmental Assessments, Special Management Area Use Permits, and various other land use permit applications.

    In her down time, Malia likes to spend time with family and friends, stay active at the beach or on hikes, and loves to cook and, most importantly, eat (though she does not consider herself a ‘foodie’)!
