Heidi is proud to have been raised in Honolulu, Hawai’i but appreciates the opportunity to represent Oregon, the state that has given her and her family new roots to establish a home, grow, and flourish. It was 16 years ago at Aloha Gymnastics in Honolulu when she met the men’s team coach Kalani Pa. He offered to help her improve her tumbling skills which meant additional and private gymnastic lessons.. Their chemistry was undeniable and soon after their love story began writing itself. They’ve been on this life journey together and happily married since June 2004.
As Mrs. Oregon, Heidi encourages others to make a difference in their community by setting an example as an active member of Soroptimist International and as a business operator, and owner of Anytime Fitness Lake Oswego. She continues to face life’s challenges head on with a resilient and positive attitude. She knows the hard hits life can pack having dealt with various challenges through the years. Family illness and death, a devastating house fire, struggles with fertility, professional and financial set backs. Heidi”s personal philosophy is: embrace life’s difficult times because the harder the struggle and the greater the sacrifice, the sweeter the success. Anything in life worth having is worth the sacrifice.
Heidi Christine Pa is honored and humbled to represent the married woman of Oregon.
