About Trish…
Foodie – Baker – Outdoor Enthusiast – Designer – Passionate – Ethitarian


TrishOn September 5, 2001 Trish’s life changed forever. She was hit by a car while riding her bicycle.

We’ll spare the details, but something in her body was triggered that day – Celiac Disease. Trauma has been found to trigger the autoimmune disease and so her journey to a gluten free diet began.

It wasn’t until 2005 that Trish was diagnosed. In graduate school, exhausted and stressed out, she had to learn how to cook, bake and live without gluten. It was challenging in the beginning for sure, but within 2 weeks of eliminating gluten from her diet, Trish felt drastically better!

Trish has been a baker all her life but the shift to gluten free baking was a bit challenging. Trish loves baking, cooking and eating good food. She also loves eating local, organic food and supporting her local farmers.

2016 marks her 22nd year in Colorado and she enjoys it more and more every day. When not in her kitchen you will find Trish and her husband typically outdoors. Trish love’s  to garden, mountain bike, hike and camp. Trish and her husband also love to entertain in their home where they keep the company of three lovely felines. In her “spare time,” she also volunteers at the Longmont Humane Society. (The Longmont Humane Society is an amazing organization and resource for our community.)

Active members in their community, Trish and her husband also belong to 2 CSA’s:

  • Aspen Moon Farms in Hygiene, CO. Aspen Moon Farms is certified organic and biodynamic
  •  Jodar Farms in Ft Collins, CO where they purchase chicken, eggs and pork.

Thanks for believing and supporting New Beat Foods!
