MEET OUR TEAM
Intramural Sports and Fitness Center Coordinator
Working for the UH System since 1994, Ryan Perreira or "Coach Ryan" (Intramural Sports and Fitness Center Coordinator) has done many different things to support his "Student First Philosophy." He has worked on every Oahu UH campus in some capacity, mostly at WCC as a counselor and advisor. He has been at UHWO since 2014 trying to engage students, staff, and faculty to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities on and off campus. Coach says, "Academics is first and foremost, but everyone needs time to laugh, smile, and have fun. Sports teaches these things as well many other soft skills that are very important to your quality of life.
His famous quote, "I'm smarter than I look."
Lead Student Staff
Since 2015, Ernie has been employed at UHWO as a mail courier and in Intramural Sports. His recurring presence and helpful nature as a volunteer lead to an offer for a position with Intramural Sports. As a staff member, Ernie assists with set up and break down of events, tabling for recruitment, and manages the Pueo Fitness Center. Ernie's involvement with IM West has led him to meet and interact with a variety of students, staff, and faculty. Ernie strives to create enjoyable moments, meaningful relationships, and lasting friendships through advocacy, encouragement, and kindness. Coach Ryan would describe him as loyal, reliable, and Santos. Ernie says, "There's a difference between going to school and going to class."
After graduating from Merced, California, Ori moved back to O'ahu to study anthropology and research health, body composition, and chronic illness. When she began school at UHWO, IM West was an opportunity to join an exciting student life program, as well as continue playing volleyball and cheating at Uno. Now working with the program since May 2018, Ori focuses on web and graphic design, photography, and marketing. Ori loves the memories full of laughter and joy -- an experience she hopes to share with many more students. Coach Ryan would describe her as intelligent, driven, and afakasi. One of her favorite quotes comes from James Lane Allen, who says, "You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you."
After graduating from Kapolei High School in May of 2018, Ceyber decided to pursue his Bachelor's degree in Marketing at UHWO. He started participating in the Intramural Sports program after becoming acquainted with a few of the staff members during his freshman orientation. Once he began to create friendships with many students and staff within IM West, he started volunteering for them. His role consists of assisting the team with tabling, managing Play to Learn, and helping out with sporting events. Coach Ryan would describe him as the mailman, easygoing, and a brother to Hi Ho Silver. Ceyber lives by the quote, "You should enjoy the little detours to the fullest, because that's where you'll find the things more important than what you want."
