Coleen’s professional journey began in publishing. In the late 1980s, she co-owned and operated the Prescott Sun, an award-winning community newspaper in Prescott, Arizona. As a publishing pioneer, Coleen was one of only six female publishers in the country. After a decade developing the newspaper, Coleen sold the Prescott Sun and purchased and copublished the Parents Pages magazine in Phoenix. It was successfully sold within the year.
Throughout the next 15 years, Coleen dedicated her time to raising her five children and serving as a community volunteer with numerous non-profit organizations including the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center, Childhelp USA, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Phoenix Family Museum, and the Junior League of Phoenix.
Today, Coleen runs all aspects of the Trinity Cross Collection. This design came to Coleen during a time of personal struggle. People began to quickly connect the Trinity Cross and its meaning to their own life experiences, and Coleen was flooded with stories and letters of faith, family and life’s challenges. Wanting to share her faith, Coleen utilized her professional experience to bring the concept of The Trinity Cross to fruition. She now leads all manufacturing, distribution and marketing efforts for the collection.
