Erika Leilani Lee Hualani Kauffman
Former Miss Hawaii Erika Kauffman not only bears the looks of a beauty queen. She’s undeniably intelligent, ultra motivated and boasts impeccable style. Kauffman is the new unit publicist for the highly anticipated show, “Hawaii Five-0,” a PR expert and power-girl on the rise to mega success. Pre-“Hawaii Five-0” and the launch of her independent company, E-PR, Kauffman represented some of the most prestigious brands in the islands including Hotels and Resorts of Halekulani Corp., actor Daniel Dae Kim, and the opening of his restaurant, the Counter. Kauffman also served as Hawaii’s official ambassador of Aloha in 1997. It’s safe to say that Miss Kauffman has haute style and some seriously haute secrets!
