who we are

Trina Whitington

I am a 30 year retired teacher. Have been a Union member/leader all 30 years.  I have served as SEA President for 6 years.  My transition to UniServ Director has been most successful due to my varied experiences both in and out of our district.

Jason has worked in the financial industry for six years. He is currently employed at UPS for the past 21 years and has been with Seminole UniServ since June 2018. He is striving to build on his knowledge to assist in strengthening the entire organization. 

I was a Paraprofessional for 2 years at Altamonte Elementary.  In 2015 I was hired by Seminole UniServ temporarily to help with the summer workload.  Shortly after I was hired as the fulltime secretary.  Ever since I have been working diligently to help improve our office processes and assist members while attending Valencia College to get my associates in Business Management.  I am now working on my bachelors at UCF.
