Defined By Relationships

Our Parent Educators are at the core of everything we do. Without their passion for families, PATGC would not be an organization known for its sustained success and committed relationships.

Alex Wade
Office Manager

Carol Simpson
Intake Coordinator
I have enjoyed working with Parents as Teachers since 2001 as the first community volunteer Parent Educator. As a mom of 2 adult kids, and now as a grandmother, I appreciate the need for parenting support for all families! As I crept towards retirement, I took on the role of office manager. Now in partial retirement, enjoy the role of Intake Coordinator.
It gives me the chance to still interact with our families!
Bonnie Trahan
Parent Educator, DPIL and Group Coordinator
Bonnie grew up in South Carolina and Michigan, and considers herself to be fortunate to be the youngest child in a very large family. Bonnie attended Western Carolina University and earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. After spending 15 years working in the fields of sales and management, Bonnie found her way back to what she feels has always been her true calling, working with children. She married one of her childhood best friend’s Kyle, and they have 2 teenage boys, Sullivan and Keegan. Bonnie loves spending time with her family, whether it is hiking in the NC mountains or the woods in Michigan, or collecting shells along the coast of SC.
