Hi there! I hope we get to meet sometime in person.  My name is Trina Garlick and I love being here at the greatest university in the state of Utah! I LOVE the students here! Besides teaching classes at the Institute, I get to help with the Institute Choir.  It is literally my dream job.


I grew up in Bountiful, UT, served a mission to Philadelphia, PA, Portugal, and Cape Verde, Africa. I received a bachelor’s in English and master’s in Educational Leadership. I am blessed with an amazing husband, Troy. Best. Cook. Ever!! We love to travel. Currently have a bucket list of all 50 states and 10 CAN provinces by 60 (we’ve got loads of time still!)  and all MLB Stadiums before end of life :-)  We have two kids who are our world! 


From personal experience and observation: life, families, circumstances, etc. can be messy and super challenging but what I love most about teaching institute is that we can always learn something from the Savior that can help us to navigate it, and it is an amazing experience to discover that together as a class.

Looking forward to meeting you sometime!
