Kathryn was born and raised an island girl. Home will always be Hawai’i. Her father is a dentist, and she plans to follow in his footsteps. Volunteering together on a global scale, her father taught her that our planet is an island, and we must all do our part. Her platform, “BFF: Brush, Floss, Fluoride,” was created with the worldwide awareness that many lifelong health issues start with tooth decay. Simple care and education can change this. As Miss America, Kathryn would work with the American Dental Association and CMN Hospitals to develop preventative measures for a healthier America.
