Workshop Presenters

Jeeyun Lee (이지연): Jeeyun is of Korean descent and has been a guest in the lands of the Kānaka Māoli in the Kingdom of Hawai’i since 2009. She has her Master’s in Social Work in international and community development and launched her career of nonprofit service over 20 years ago in the Midwest. After contributing to the O‘ahu nonprofit sector for almost a decade, Jee moved to Maui in 2018 because it was important to her to raise her son ‘where he is ancestrally from’, and for both of them to connect and contribute to that community. This was an experience she never had being raised in Michigan due to the Korean war’s impact on Korea’s economy at the time of her parents’ immigration. They currently live closer to his Hawaiian ‘ohana who is from the Nāpili area in West Maui. She enjoys spending time with her son Kaimakana and husband Jeffrey immersed in nature, exploring mauka to makai. Jee currently serves as the Director of Impact at Maui United Way and volunteers with many nonprofits in her spare time. She is also a managing partner and consultant at ChangeWorks, focused on creating impactful change within our community.
