Whether it’s in a classroom or outside of it- she gets excited about partnering with the incredible FBRA teachers to develop healthy, happy, curious, caring students!

You can usually find Tricia somewhere on a river or trail- often with a paddle in her hands, sometimes with a paintbrush. She enjoys outdoor adventures with her community and challenging herself with trying new things.
