Louise Tanswell RN, MT, CLT
Hawaii Chapter Chair
Louise is a British trained nurse, who relocated to the USA in 1989. She moved to Hawaii 13 years ago as a Travel Nurse, fell in love with the Island and is now settled on the Windward side of Oahu. With 30 years of nursing experience primarily in end of life and palliative care, her passion to remain "hands on" motivated her to become a Licensed Massage Therapist. Louise is now certified in Complete Decongestive Therapy by The Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy. She also kept her British connections and recently visited several British Lymphedema Clinics, which further inspired her to advocate for the people of Hawaii. Her mission is to reach out across the Islands to raise public awareness of this often-under diagnosed disease, connect those who are suffering with the care they deserve, and help to raise money for LE&RN’s research programs to someday find a cure.
