JSO Program Supervisor
Trish Lee knew from a very early age that she was a “helper” and wanted to work with children. At 17 she declared herself a Psychology Major at a University in the North East. Trish was a crisis hotline worker through college until she earned her Bachelors of Science and moved to Las Vegas to work with at risk youth. She has been supervising a staff run therapeutic home since 2001. This home is a comprehensive treatment program to help teenage boys who have become involved with the juvenile justice system. Trish finds this work very rewarding and still receives regular visits and calls from the young men she helped long ago. Some of these young men are now in their 30’s and are husbands, fathers, soldiers, mentors and productive members of society. Eagle Quest has provided Trish the opportunity to expand her role and start other programs to help children with no legal trouble, but still in need of guidance and healing. She uses a firm but fair approach with the children she works with and is very empathetic. Trish enjoys creating art, snowboarding and gardening. She is an animal lover and works tirelessly with local rescue groups to save furry friends.
This Las Vegas native had an “ah-ha moment” when she volunteered in a program called Wednesday’s Child in 7th grade. At this event, she found out and faced first hand what foster care was and realized how lucky she was to have a family. Since then, Edylynn has dedicated her life to being an advocate for at-risk youth and families. She studied Psychology at UNLV, and held the positions of Philanthropy Chair and Social Chair at Delta Zeta Sorority. As Philanthropy Chair, Edylynn worked with children in Safe Key, visited Children’s Hospital, and volunteered many hours for speech and hearing organizations for tutoring and fundraising initiatives. In her spare time, she enjoys arts and craft projects, reading, yoga and singing karokee.
Erik is a veteran of the Air Force where he served in Germany for 5 years as a Security Police officer. He graduated from UNLV (Go Rebels!) in 2009 with a degree in Biology. Originally he was planning to attend medical school, but during his involvement with a local inner city program he found his calling while working the kids. Most of the kids were at-risk or underprivileged and needed love and support. Erik felt drawn to a position where he could show these hurting kids that they DID matter, that there are people who do care. Upon graduation he started working with Eagle Quest, initially as an RMH Specialist and then moving on to the Activities Department. Erik is now the Activities Supervisor at Eagle Quest and is truly thankful for the opportunities he has to make a difference. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and baby boy.
Information Technology Supervisor
John has been building Web sites since the creation of the “World Wide Web”. After graduating from college with a degree in Psychology/Biology the plan was to go directly into Graduate School and gain a doctoral degree working as a Research Analyst. However after taking his first job at a non-profit research publishing organization, the director needed someone to get data out to the World… ASAP! John immediately said, “I can do that”. Soon after that John combined his two true loves: data and this new technology that allowed millions to access information right from the comfort of one’s home. Plans changed and his new life began, sitting behind a computer for hours on end and he could not be happier.
John joined Eagle Quest since 2011 and currently serves as the Information Technology Supervisor. Together with his team, they work on both the public Web sites and the intranet that allows employees and parents to do their daily work. In his free time he enjoys volunteering, reading, playing/watching tennis, and traveling.
