Sandy Matsui | Empowering Girls Ambassador
Sandy’s life as a Rotarian began 31 years when she became a proud member of the Rotary Club of Kane’ohe on the beautiful island of O’ahu. When she tried to join earlier, Rotary wasn’t quite ready for women yet so she once she became empowered to join, she has taken advantage of
the opportunities to serve. Her adventures include serving as District Governor of D5000 (Hawaii) 2021-22, Asst. Governor, Secretary, District Trainer, Club President and continues to be active in her Club and District. She is a Paul Harris Fellow and Polio Plus Society member and has been active in the Zone on committees including Farwest PETs, Southwest PETs, Zone Institute, and the BIg West Breakfast just held at the RI Convention in Melbourne.
In addition to Sandy’s Rotary life, she is married to Gerry, is mom to two boys Gerand and GeRysand and doggie mom to two mini dachshund girls Khaleesi and Angel. She even has a fulltime job as a faculty member at the University of Hawaii at Manoa where she oversees the student media programs.
These are exciting times in Rotary and there is no shortage of inspiring examples of Rotary’s work to empower women and girls. Together, let’s Serve with Aloha to Create Hope in the World.
