Trish McCarty helps education superstars and professionals have more power and income for reinventing K-12 education. She has democratized the best schools and brought innovation to an audience who traditionally found it difficult to get involved. Ms. McCarty came into the world with a global view; born in Frankfurt, Germany, as a U.S. Air Force military “brat” and as a child in Tokyo, Japan, where she served on the United Nations Board of Children. She attended Fort Lewis College, in her family’s home town of Durango, Colorado with a human biology and neuroscience major and was recruited from there as an executive for AT&T. After five years, she was recruited by the President of Mellon Bank to develop national banking centers. An avid entrepreneur, she subsequently started a bank that grew to $128M in five years and won awards and highlights in national news including INC Magazine. Her company opened her first charity charter school, STARSHINE ACADEMY INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS in the fall of 2002 for K-12 high-risk children, on a crime-ridden street in Arizona. The highly acclaimed academic “School Eco-Village” is a replicable model for success based on the holistic education of a child in health, wealth, happiness, body, mind, and spirit. It integrates the environment and personal health with a community garden and the spirit with music, art and technology. All of the children participate in community service projects integrated into the curriculum to learn economic development and patriotism. She has created partnerships with the United Nations by hosting 11 Days of Peace & Sustainability each year from 9-11—21. The school prototype model integrates the best practices for human resource management, sustainability, professional development, data collection and business management. Ms. McCarty is a Lincoln Center Fellow for Arizona State University for Education Leadership and is a partner at ASU Skysong Innovation Center. Yoga is an integral part of the StarShine student curriculum as Ms. McCarty has studied and taught yoga for nearly thirty years. She is a constant community activist for peace, women in leadership, and child advocacy. She is married to guitarist and platinum recording artist, Steve McCarty. Steve and Trish frequently combine their talents in workshops and lectures to spread their message of empowerment, love, harmony, and unity.
