Vice President, Wishes

Trina Cottingham heads up the Wish Department and oversees the wish-granting team.

Every day is exciting and provides new opportunities collaborating with staff, volunteers, donors and wish families to make over 300 wishes come true annually.

Trina first became involved with our local Make-A-Wish chapter in 1996 as a wish-granting volunteer. Through her exposure to the mission and the kids we serve, she was moved to apply for her first job at the chapter in 1999 as a Disney Wish Coordinator. Over the last 18 years with the chapter she has had the opportunity to work with countless people in the community and never ceases to be amazed by the generosity of others. 

Trina spends her free time creating and is an avid quilter, knitter and jewelry designer. She works year round to create enough wares to sell at the annual Seattle Soulumination Art Sale in December where a portion of her profits are donated to the charity. 

Trina earned her bachelor of science in Psychology with a minor in Swedish Language at the University of Washington.
