Educated in the public school system until high school, Brandy is a 1995 graduate of Kamehameha Schools. Obtaining her undergraduate degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Family Resources, Brandy went on to obtain a master's degree in counseling psychology from Chaminade University in 2001, recently obtaining her professional Mental Health Counselor license.
