A graduate of the William S.

She served as a Summer Associate at Damon Key, working on both transactional and litigation matters, and a Law Clerk/Extern for Judge Lisa M. Ginoza of the State of Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals.

While at law school, Loren was a top oralist at the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. The University of Hawaii team was named the 2015 Jessup Pacific Regional Champion, where Loren won Best Oralist out of over 100 competitors and the team won second Best Memorials. As a second-year law student, she participated in the Susan B. McKay Oral Advocacy Competition, taking seventh place among all competing second- and third-year law school students. Loren was also the President of Students with Keiki, an organization that provides logistical support and encouragement to law students with children. She is also a member of Phi Delta Phi International Legal Fraternity. Upon graduating, Loren earned an Environmental Law Certificate, an area of interest kindled in part by her appreciation of and concern for Hawaii’s natural resources.

Loren earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration from Indiana Wesleyan University, cum laude. While pursuing her undergraduate degree, she worked full-time as a Legal Assistant/Title Associate at Yonas & Rink/American Homeland Title. Prior to that, she was a Team Coordinator at Dave and Buster’s Inc. in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she managed the hiring, training, and development of 120 to 200 employees.

Born in Southern California, Loren moved to Hawaii with her family at the age of six, grew up in Palolo Valley, and attended public and private schools on Oahu before moving to Michigan in the ninth grade. While in high school, she sang in numerous choral ensembles, participated in regional and state choral competitions and traveled to Canada, England, France, and Wales to perform and record in cathedrals. She also played on the Varsity Singles Tennis team, was very active in church youth group, mission trips, and student council.
