Originally born in Hawaii, Kiana’s family moved to Southern California. As a youngster, she was constantly teased by her classmates for being different. Tom wanted to be just like her friends (blonde haired and blue-eyed). Eventually, she outgrew her phase and learned to like the idea of not being like everyone else.
Since then, Tom has appeared in numerous gigs on TV, as well as magazines. She is probably most recognized for her 6 year stint on the popular ESPN television show Body Shaping. Tom has also been seen in the movies Universal Soldier and Cyber Bandits and in “The Drew Carey Show” television series.
Currently, Tom is doing two shows on ESPN2 called Kiana’s Flex Appeal and Kiana’s Too Fit 2 Quit.
Kiana is part Hawaiian, Chinese and Irish. Her name means “calm water” in Hawaiian.
