Trish was born and raised in the Navy – living all over the Pacific Coast, Texas and Guam. She experienced a diversity of cultures until the age of 12 at which time the family moved to Arkansas. Her high school sweetheart became her husband with whom she raised two children and moved all over the United States, finally settling in Colorado fifteen years ago. She worked at a private high school in Boulder, September School, from 1997 to 2002. There she worked as an office manager, board member and a volunteer coordinator. While working at September School, Trish also volunteered in the Probation Department in 1999. In 2002, she returned to college at the University of Colorado, going full time. She took a BA in Sociology with a minor in Ethnic Studies in 2005. Her goal was to become a Probation Officer. After graduating from CU, Trish worked at the District Attorney’s office for 2 years as an assessment coordinator for juveniles prior to their appearance in court. She had her opportunity to become a Probation Officer in 2007 at which time she was able to transfer to the Probation Department. She worked there for two-and-a-half years. Trish says that she thinks that her heart was not in that job because she believed that there were better ways to help those in need of restructuring their lives. She feels and believes that the philosophy of Rangeview fits very well into what she believes can help a client in a positive way. She enjoys supporting and assisting each client through their treatment, which allows them to go from the “Unaware” to the “Stick With It” Stages of Change. Now that her CAC I is completed and waiting for the paperwork process to get that Certificate in hand, Trish is looking forward to the opportunity to facilitate groups on her own with supervision. She will be a CAC II in a few months.
