HI! My name is Trina Cooper and I have been given the wonderful opportunity to join the Families Together organization within the Executive Director position, WOW!!! I am terribly excited to be a part of such a tremendously innovative and compassionate program, one that strives to strengthen and support families in such amazing ways.
I started my journey in Pullman, Washington in 1999 as a freshman at Washington State University. I’m a native of the Pacific Northwest, but today am very blessed to call Pullman, Washington my home. I pride myself in being a single mother of 4 beautiful girls (yes girls! Eek!!!) and I also work in the property management industry.
I have always had a passion for learning and pride myself as a “life-long learner”. I started a Doctorate program in Management this past September and while there is always lots to juggle, I have enjoy learning, growing. I can’t wait to learn and grow with Families Together. I look forward to meeting you all soon. Happy holidays and stay warm until we meet again!
