Katrina Valcourt

Managing Editor at HONOLULU Magazine

Before that, she worked as a video production assistant, studied abroad in Berlin and Florence, and graduated from UH with a major in communication and a minor in English.

She is now the managing editor of HONOLULU and likes to sew sock squids and throw pots.
