Board of Directors

Danielle Yafuso is Vice President and Branch Properties Manager for First Hawaiian Bank. She oversees facilities maintenance for the bank’s 60 branches, and provides strategic planning, design and construction management for new development projects.  

Danielle is a graduate of Punahou School and the University of Hawaii at Manoa, School of Architecture. In her continuing support of the community, she serves as a board member on the Hawaii Architectural Foundation, the American Institute of Architects Honolulu Chapter, and coaches basketball for the Manoa Girls Athletic Association.

Danielle’s greatest inspiration continues to be her family. Her son, who was diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum, continues to have needs that help her discover the ultimate kindness and generosity in people. Her family is one of many fortunate recipients of Early Intervention Services from Easterseals Hawaii, and she is very appreciative of the opportunity to serve on the board where she hopes to promote awareness and advocate for more support in our local community.
