Tre Gaarder believes in living life in steady pursuit of character-building experiences. Since moving to Austin in 2004, she has worn many hats, helmets and headsets. This retired Texas Rollergirl turned quad speed skater has worked as a motorcycle instructor, an East Austin shaved ice queen, and is now a 911 dispatcher and trainer in Round Rock. When she’s not whizzing by on her roller skates or telling officers where to go, she’s a garden fairy in her very own avocado orchard.
Tre will share her story of a childhood as a ‘Moonie’ and an eventual escape in her piece Break the Blessing.
