Seeing profitable companies and individuals give back to the communities that support them has fueled her passion to navigate the modern fund development world to drive change, build sustainability, and inspire philanthropy.
With experience in healthcare, higher-education institutions, and in diversity, equity, and inclusion work, Asia is committed to exploring ways of positively impacting the community and to help organizations build a strong foundation for growth.

What We Believe
Serving others is the foundation of Community Impact Advisors. Our team’s life purpose gives us the ability to turn interest in support to meaningful action for social change, not only in Hawaii but across the Pacific Islands and throughout the world.

The acacia koa, native to the Hawaiian Islands, represents the scope of work that Community Impact Advisors provides to our clients. With its huge canopy, the acacia koa tree has a far-reaching presence that represents vitality and fruition rooted in a rich heritage. And, similar to the sickle shaped leaves that allow sunlight to pass through and provide nourishment for the whole tree, our services will strengthen your entire organization. The acacia koa tree’s resourcefulness lasts for generations and you can expect that Community Impact Advisors fundraising consultants will partner with your organization to generate lasting impact on the community.
Born in Kumamoto, Japan, Jennifer wanted a symbol that blended her cultural heritage with her love for the island community she serves. Working closely with BlackLetter Group and JSquared Designs Hawaii, the circular logo was designed to embody the Japanese mon (emblem or crest used to identify a family or individual) with the acacia koa.
