Aloha, I'm Tim Dalhouse
I grew up in North Carolina and joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1985 at the age of 18. I served almost 24 years of active duty as a United States Marine retiring in 2009 as a Master Gunnery Sergeant/E9. I deployed all over the world and aboard the USS Bataan participating in numerous combat operations as an Avionics Chief including NATO Operation Enduring Freedom (Bosnia-Herzegovina), Desert Storm, and the Global War on Terror. I also served as a Recruiter, Instructor, and Manpower Manager at Headquarters, Marine Corps at Quantico.
The highest honor of my Marine Corps career was performing as a Casualty Escort bringing home the remains of 3 Marines killed in action during Operation Iraqi Freedom to their families. My military awards include: Meritorious Service Medal (twice), Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medal (twice), Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, NATO Medal, & the Armed Forces Service Medal.
After the Marine Corps, I worked in the Washington, DC area as a Project Manager for government contracting companies, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, and private industry. In 2017 I founded the global training company, PM-ProLearn, and serve as the CEO. PM-ProLearn trains 200-300 students per month and employs 26 Americans, most of whom are Veterans or family members of Veterans.
I hold an MBA degree and I am a Project Management Professional (PMP) as well as an International Consortium for Agile Certified Practitioner (ICP).
My wife, Alicia, and I are kama‘aina who have lived on Oahu and now make our home in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island. I am a husband, father, stepfather, and community servant leader. I previously served as Treasurer of Youth for Christ of Central Maryland and now lead a young adult group at Grace Kona Community Church. I am also a deacon at the church.
Alicia and I are avid Scuba divers and explorers who mālama ‘aina as we enjoy the beauty of God's awesome creation and warm aloha of the Hawaiian people.
I am running for the office of United States Senator as a Republican. I'm eager to fight for our constitutional freedoms, quality of life, and the American Dream as a U.S Senator for Hawaii!
