Maile Jachowski, M.D.
Founder / Program & Curriculum Developer
NativeFit was created and developed by Dr. Maile Apau Jachowski, M.D., a Native Hawaiian physician, educator, and mother of five. She is an experienced clinical pediatrician, Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a past medical director of Kamehameha Schools (largest Native Hawaiian school system), and completed a community health fellows program at Stanford University School of Medicine. She is an ACE Certified Health Coach and Personal Trainer, an AFAA Certified Group Exercise Instructor, and a YogaFit Certified Instructor. After spending years working on the disease side of medicine - and experiencing the devastating consequences lifestyle diseases had on family, friends, and patients - she created NativeFit. She uses the power of Native culture, science-based knowledge, physical activity and creativity to bring sustainable, health-oriented solutions to the serious problem of lifestyle diseases for people of all ages.
