Colleen Kelley Heyer
Born and raised in Honolulu, Colleen has always loved being in the ocean, especially surfing and canoe paddling. A graduate of Punahou School (‘82), she earned her bachelor’s of business degree on the mainland. Upon returning home, she was a loan officer at Bank of Hawai‘i before becoming a full time homemaker to her three kids. Colleen was an active Hawaiian Monk Seal response volunteer for 15 years, teaching visitors, community members, and kids how to coexist with and be good stewards of monk seals. Colleen helped develop the foundational structure of the Hawaiʻi Monk Seal Response Team and was part of their original leadership. Colleen is passionate about all things environmental, including our unique Hawaiian ecosystem from monk seals to the Manu O Kū nesting in her yard. We are excited for Colleen to bring her experience to CCH.
