Her knowledge of Hawaiian history and culture has allowed her to forge linkages among disparate individuals and groups that results in positive community impacts
McGregor was involved in the initial planning for Kahoolawe after it was turned over to the state and in establishing the Kahoolawe Ohana. Recently, she coordinated access to the island for college and high school students, community organizations and families.
