MEET THE FACILITATORS

 
Trisha Benson, Intra Partner

Trisha Benson 

Trisha has settled in Reno, NV with her husband and 2 young children after years of living and traveling internationally. After studying International Development at UCLA she ended up in East Africa for nearly a decade. In Uganda, she initially worked as the Head of African Development for an NGO that delivered refurbished computers and teacher training to schools throughout Africa. She then moved into Corporate Social Responsibility with an upstream Oil & Gas organization. Never one to take the well beaten path, she did a complete 180 in 2013, moving to Bali to do a yoga teacher training, get married, and begin a path of personal development.

 

Currently Trisha is a partner and COO at Intra while also managing a fitness studio. This ticks all the "passion" boxes: people, movement and personal growth. When not working or being a personal snack chef for her children, she enjoys traveling, reading and meditation.

Felipe Galvis, Intra Facilitator

Felipe Galvis

Felipe Galvis lives comfortably in two worlds: one in which he fully embraces his analytical and data-driven side from his experience in engineering, start-ups and operations; and the creative one in which he dives into writing, painting and exploring his own intuition. 

Originally from Colombia, Felipe lives in Spain and works as the Growth and New Ventures Director for Evolution: Innovation Forward, a company that promotes entrepreneurship through assisting companies with public and private funding as well as business performance. 

He has a Master of Engineering, an M.B.A., and 14 years of work experience across 10 different countries. Being exposed to so many diverse and multicultural environments has expanded and enriched his worldview in unforeseen ways, highlighting the need for balance between creativity, the analytical brain, spirituality and personal growth. Becoming a facilitator with Intra is one of the ways he has found to create that balance for himself as well as helping others achieve the same.
