Trisha is originally from Muskegon, Michigan, and attended Michigan State University, where she earned her degree in Special Education. After graduating, Trisha joined the Peace Corps and served for two years in the Philippines, teaching alongside local counterparts and developing sustainable, interactive teaching models and lasting relationships. Not ready to embrace winter immediately, she moved to Hawaii and taught special education for a year. Now in Denver, Trisha is excited to join the DMHS family as the Special Education teacher! In her free time, Trisha loves reading, listening to music, hiking and traveling.
