Aloha! Steve has been an independent insurance agent (broker) for over 35 years, is a Registered Health Underwriter (RHU) and enjoys working with each client to make sure they are properly protected. Also, that they understand their insurance. Steve is always available to answer your questions and to take the time to help understand your unique situation. Away from work Steve enjoys spending time with his business partner and wife Karen, playing baseball, working in the yard and enjoying all of God’s creation.
Karen has been working in the insurance industry for over 30 years. She began with property and casualty insurance and then moved into the health, life and group benefits arena and truly enjoys helping people understand insurance. She likes sewing and painting and the expression of creativity those hobbies bring. She is happy in her craft loft repurposing her husband’s old Tommy Bahama shirts into Aloha attire for work. Reading is her passion and she can often be found in an outdoor lounge chair reading her Kindle and enjoying the sunshine.
Kathy came to Aloha in 2015 and her cheerful morning greetings have resonated through the office ever since. She is a teacher at heart and enjoys helping others understand health, life, dental and vision insurance using everyday language. Her warmth makes her your instant friend. She is also the luckiest member of our team. She frequently wins prizes and raffles. Family is very important to Kathy and she is blessed to have both her parents, in their 90’s, still living. She enjoys coloring, cooking and spending time with friends to relax.
Kelly joined the insurance industry in 2004 and we welcomed her to the Aloha Team in 2011. She’s solar powered, a mother to 3 girls, a cancer survivor and proud supporter of the The Leukemia Society. She loves hiking, bike rides, family BBQ’s and the beach. She specializes in Auto, Home and Business Insurance and gained her CISR insurance designation (Certified Insurance Service Representative) in 2012. On the weekends, you will find Kelly and her husband Eric exploring the beautiful sights of San Diego.
We are thrilled to have Stacie back in the office. Stacie serviced the Aloha clients from 2003-2009 before relocating to East Africa for seven years where she met and married her husband George. They have three amazing kids. (Fun fact: Each child was born in a different country!) Fortunately, Stacie kept her insurance license active and has returned to help provide Exceptional Customer Support to our clients. On the weekends, Stacie loves to be out and about with her kids. They frequent various parks, beaches, swimming pools and the Zoo. Stacie is grateful to be back at Aloha where it feels like home and everyone is so friendly and kind.
Lisa Van Hooser
We welcomed her to the Aloha Team in August of 2023. She has worked in the medical industry for the last 19 years. Born and raised in Southern California. She currently lives in Carlsbad with her husband and 3 children. She loves running, hiking, camping, baking, and going to the beach. On the weekends she enjoys spending time with her family.
Nickolas is one of two office cats. He can be found wandering from desk to desk looking for belly rubs and a comfortable place to nap. Anything that moves becomes his new toy. He works about one day per week and is hoping to put in enough hours to join the office vision plan.
Holly Berry is a whirlwind of movement and activity. Don’t let the photo fool you. Being much smaller than her brother she has no fear of tackling him and taking him down. It should be noted that Nickolas is a big mush and allows her to do so—every time. She loves to climb and is sometimes found where she shouldn’t be making the adventure all the more fun. She often makes the Aloha Team laugh with her silliness. For now she works about one day per week but that might increase if she shows interest in putting in more hours.
