Member Spotlight: Cheryl Kozai, MBA, BSN, RN, FACHE
Jessica Niles, MBA, RN-C

For this month's member spotlight, we feature ACHE Hawai'i member Cheryl Kozai, MBA, BSN, RN, FACHE. Cheryl has 10 years of experience in critical care nursing and 20 years in hospital administration in various roles. She was recently elected as a board member for the Hawai’i-Pacific Chapter of ACHE. She has been a member of ACHE since 2010, and just renewed her ACHE Fellowship.

What is your role in your organization?

I am the Director of Medical Subspecialties and Hospital Based Medicine for the Hawaii Pacific Health Medical Group.

What roles have you taken/activities have you been involved with in ACHE?

I got involved just this year at the local level as a director with the Hawai’i-Pacific Chapter.

Are you involved in any community activities?

I have worked with the American Organization of Nurse Leaders as a Hawai’i Chapter member and past board member. Prior to the pandemic I was an AYSO soccer mom for my son’s teams.

What are your primary areas of interest or concern as a health care leader?

I am particularly interested in improving upstream access to care and wellness and addressing the disparities of care within the community.

What role(s) would you like to see ACHE play in the local health care industry?

I would like to see ACHE involve itself in advocacy for health and wellness education through the state public health and education systems.

Any wisdom or advice to share with chapter members?

What are you waiting for?

What do you do for fun (bio info with no professional value)?

I enjoy cooking, piano, gardening, and Pinot Noir.

Mahalo Cheryl!
