Hope has worked at various jobs through the years and currently is the Health Nurse Aide at Kohala Elementary School.

She loves music and is active in the music ministry at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. As a child, she took hula lessons for a while and did not take it up again until 1996 under kumu hula Rayleen Lancaster.
