<br /><br />Kat Wade / Special to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser<br />Tulsi Gabbard identifies with the Hindu faith -- her mother is Hindu and father, Roman Catholic. She is shown giving her victory speech Tuesday at the Japanese Cultural Center in Honolulu.<br />

Hawaii U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is looking to fill two top staff positions, including her chief of staff.

Amy Asselbaye is leaving the Hawaii-based position to devote more time to her work at the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center. She also co-opened a coffee shop in Hawaii Kai with her husband and another couple last year.

Asselbaye served as a longtime congressional aide to Neil Abercrombie and as an aide to the governor before leaving toward the end of his first year in office.

“With my chief of staff returning to her job at the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center, I decided to move my chief of staff position to the D.C. office to handle the day-to-day office operations while Congress is in session,” Gabbard said in a statement.

Gabbard, a Democrat, also is looking to replace her deputy chief of staff, Jennifer Goedke, who left the position earlier this month. No reason for her departure was given.
