Aloha! My name is Christina Kaleolani KauhaneKalehua Kapu’uwaioKamauna Pahio Shimamoto, my maiden name is Foster. I was born and raised in Ninole on the Big Island of Hawaii, up in the mountains where we had a garden and farm animals. While my friends grew up watching tv and playing video games, I grew up in the country learning the importance of hard work. I have 8 brothers and 3 sisters. I attended Laupahoehoe High & Elementary School and then went to Hilo Community College to become an entrepreneur. In 2014 I got married to the love of my life and we are now the proud parents of 3 girls and 1 boy.

When I was 16 years old, my dad suffered a major stroke that left him needing to recuperate for years, he needed care in a nursing facility, and then extensive care at home. It was a huge blessing that he had a great insurance plan that helped him and my mom through such a hard time. I have seen first hand how important it is to have a health insurance plan that covers your needs, which is why I decided to become an insurance agent, so that I can help other kupuna find the right plan for them.

As we all know, no two people are exactly alike, everyone will need and want different Medicare benefits. There are a lot of Medicare options, it can get confusing and overwhelming, as a health insurance broker I am here to help you navigate through the many choices, so that you can make educated decisions to maximize your benefits every year. I am here willing and able to answer any questions you might have regarding Medicare such as benefits, costs and eligibility requirements. I would be honored to be called your Agent and to help you enroll in the right plan for you.
