Anything else we should know? I was born and raised in Fiji Islands. I know a lot of people ask me, why Arizona. I met my wife, who is originally from Fiji as well and has been a resident of Maricopa, for the last 14 years. We got married and I moved here. At first it was very difficult, I didn’t know anyone, there was no soccer leagues in Maricopa back then. I have adjusted well over the years and made Maricopa home and I am excited for all the new business and development as it provides opportunities for all of us. Thank you for choosing Kooline Plumbing Maricopa.
