Maile grew up in Hawaii and spent her high school years in Washington State. She came to Montana in 2010 to attend MSU and fell in love with Bozeman. While pursuing degrees in Cell Biology and Neuroscience and Psychology she had a chance encounter with a ski patroller that started her down her pre-hospital medicine track. In 2013 she got her EMT license and has been a volunteer ski patroller with Big Sky Ski Patrol since then. Maile has worked at Bozeman Health as a pharmacy technician for the past four years.
In her free time she likes to go on adventures with her dogs and travel.
