NWESC Board of Directors
WELCOME OUR NEWEST BOARD MEMBER - Trisha Newell
Trisha Newell works in business administration at Microsoft and enjoys finding ways to use her career to give back to the community, particularly in ways that focus on animals. She has spent most of her life around equines, riding and caring for them. Over the past few years she has developed a passion for creating deep relationships with equines and teaching them through positive reinforcement training that they have a voice. What seemed like just stepping into a new training philosophy has entirely changed the way she looks at and interacts with equines, opening her eyes to a seemingly different world. Trisha will forever be grateful that her mare Tess was smart and persistent enough to teach her a new way of life. Read more
