About Us

   

Aloha! Mahalo for joining us at Wailea People & Paws. My name is Briana and my husband Mike and I are the owners. I’m a registered pharmacist here in Hawaii (as well as Arizona and Nevada) and love all things medicine and skincare related.

I got my Bachelors in Health Science from Boise State University and a Doctorate in Pharmacy at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona. I have been working in pharmacy since 2006 starting as a Pharmacy Tech in Idaho.  My background includes retail, compounding, infusion and nuclear pharmacy. In Arizona I was the Nuclear Pharmacist Manager while handling complex cases compounding nuclear and radioactive medication for PCI Nuclear in Phoenix while simultaneously managing and compounding the Home Infusion Pharmacy making essential IV antibiotics for Arizona Home Care. We moved to Hawaii in 2019 and I have been the IV Pharmacy Manager for PharmaCare Hawaii prior to owning my own store here in Wailea, South Maui Island, Hawaii.  Mike is a registered Physical Therapist here in Hawaii as well as in Arizona and a former minor league pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels.  He has a vast knowledge of health and rehabilitation in sports medicine and geriatrics. Our family made the move to Hawaii to live out our dream of being near the ocean and raising our sons in a diverse culture with a strong family-oriented community.  While living here, the people of Hawaii have given us the gift of Aloha.  That is something that we feel that we will always be in debt to as it has been truly been life changing.  In return, we will provide our gift of knowledge and resources in medicine and rehabilitation to the people of Hawaii who wouldn't otherwise have it locally available.  Here in Hawaii, I truly feel at home, with nature at my doorstep and the Aloha shared between our community.  

At Wailea People & Paws we will be able to provide customized medication for the entire family including your pets!  We have two state of the art clean rooms to safely compound hazardous and sterile preparation's in house to achieve your optimal health.  Please reach out for a free consultation to formulate a personalized health plan!
