Keopu Reelitz describes herself as a proud millennial evidenced by her diverse professional background. Currently, she works hard for Hawaii’s youngest kids as the Communication Specialist for the Executive Office on Early Learning (EOEL). EOEL, which was created only 7 years ago, is the state’s leader in early learning, working to coordinate a mixed delivery system serving kids birth to 5 years old. Prior to EOEL, Reelitz served as the Public Information Officer for the Hawaii Department of Human Services (DHS). Reelitz is most proud of the work she did to build up both internal communications and crisis communications efforts at DHS. Previously, Reelitz was editor-in-chief for MANA Magazine, an award-winning start-up publication with national circulation that focused on Hawaiians and the Hawaiian community. Reelitz, who was born and raised on Oahu, earned her J.D. from the University of Arizona and a B.A. in Political Science and International Studies from Loyola University Chicago.
