OUR COMMUNITY. OUR FUTURE.
REPRESENTATIVE AMY PERRUSO
Representative Amy Perruso is a longtime resident of District 46's beautiful Launani Valley and Wahiawa communities. A teacher at heart, her endeavor to educate our children has taken her around the world, from California to Shanghai to Finland and, finally, to Central O'ahu, where she taught social studies in the Hawai'i Department of Education for almost 20 years.
Representative Perruso previously served as Secretary-Treasurer of the Hawai'i State Teachers Association. She was also a member of Gov. David Ige's Every Student Succeeds Act Team, which crafted a blueprint for the future of Hawai'i's public schools.
Representative Perruso has been a Fulbright Scholar and finalist for the Gilder-Lehrman National History Teacher of the Year Award. When she's not working for her community, Representative Perruso enjoys preserving our 'aina, surfing, and spending time with her family. She is also a member of the Wahiawā Lions Club, the Central O'uhu Soroptimists, the Wahiawā-Waialua Rotary Club, the Hawaiian Civic Club of Wahiawā, and the Wahiawā Agricultural Association.
