Trina was born in the UK but moved to Indiana when she was six, where she grew up. She has a degree in psychology from Purdue University and a degree in general studies from Indiana University. In 2007 she joined the National Guard and was a combat medic until 2010, when she became a logistics and ordinance officer. She recently moved to Boulder and began her new position as the Appm Graduate Student Coordinator because she fell in love with Boulder after visiting about a year ago. She likes to mountain bike, backpack, hike, ski, and be outdoors.
