Laurie Yoshida

Treasurer

Tell us something about yourself.
I am currently the Communications Manager for Corteva Agriscience in Hawaii. Serve on numerous Boards and Commissions including the Kauai Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of Kauai and the Salary Commission for the County of Kauai. Married with 2 adult children.

How did you start playing pickleball?
I attended a clinic set up by one of our walking partners. There were several of us that attended and now play multiple times a week.

What do you like most about pickleball?
It is a lot of fun! The social aspect of the game is as much of the experience as actually playing the games. Provides a fun way for me to get a workout!


Why do you serve as Treasurer of PAK?
I was asked to serve due to my familiarity with both the workings of a non-profit and my prior experience working with government entities. I serve as treasurer of several other non-profits so I was happy to serve as treasurer of PAK. Serving on the PAK BOD will help me learn more about the game and meet other players from around the island.
