Over the years many students have come to know her as Ms. Vivienne, or Ms. Kam. But what remains the same is her commitment to engage, educate, enrich, & entertain. With over 15 years of experience in education, from after school programming both as a teacher and director, teaching, curriculum design, writer, and a background in performing arts, Kam and her staff are ready to engage. She can Edu-tain your students or staff with a high energy program that will leave them with loads of content, motivation, and maybe even some new dance moves! Or help you transform, or build a new program.
In addition to teaching and training Kam is also a children's book author, has contributed articles to Edutopia , and Hawaii Parent Magazine. In 2017 she became a Master Trainer for the American Red Cross of Hawaii, where she trains on Cultural Competency, Team Work, and other priority topics.

Her life motto , Get Up & Thrive, is at the core of everything she does.
She loves to edu-tain, but she also does her research. All of her programs are filled with data driven methods and strategies. She has a M.Ed in Curriculum & Instruction.

I wanted to thank you so much for putting together such a great training on such short notice. You are a dynamic trainer full of energy and so engaging. Several site coordinators approached me for your contact information immediately after, our Hawaii island manager wants to set up a training with you and I would like to schedule my Kauai island sites. When you’ve been in this business for so long it is so wonderful to have a breath of fresh air like you come in. We look forward to working with you in the near future.
