Trina is a writer, counsellor and facilitator with a background in social work, environmental studies, farming and yoga; and a deep desire to support people on their journey towards wellness and adaptation. She came to the Work that Reconnects and Joanna Macy's teaching in 2010 when she became overwhelmed with despair while earning her Environmental Studies degree. Her passion for WtR led to her to facilitate the work for her various communities, including activists, youth and everyday earth lovers. In 2019 she spearheaded the organization of the Salish Sea Bio-Regional Work that Reconnects Gathering. She is now working to build upon and expand her Work that Reconnects facilitation and counselling offerings on Southern Vancouver Island.
