She received a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology from the University of California at Davis and an M.A. in Pacific Island studies from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Ms. Cordy has managed and developed cultural and historical geodatabases for government agencies, aliʻi trusts and communities across Hawaiʻi.
