She is working on two book manuscripts; The Mana of the Tongan Everyday: Tongan Grief and Mourning, Patriarchal Violence, and Remembering Va and a collection of creative non-fiction titled, Looking For Hine Nui Te Po: Searching for Our Mother.

This Fall 2020, she is curating, Our Moana Nui; We are Pacific Islander Studies, a literary event sponsored by the San Francisco Public Library featuring distinguished Pacific Islander poets, storytellers and frontline leaders from the U.S. and the Pacific to honor the life and work of the renowned Samoan poet, Albert Wendt. This project is part of a series of programs advocating for the reinstatement of Islander Studies in the California Ethnic Studies curriculum.
