Marcy Rose

President
Email: [email protected]

Marcy spends a good amount of her free time as a volunteer with Family Court and often brings her therapy dog, Nicky to see the children on her cases.  Guardian ad Litem volunteers represent the children’s best interest during the court cases.  The children are in the court system due to no fault of their own, but due to neglect, abuse or abandonment. I visit the kids regularly and report to the court how the kids are doing on a human level opposed to just being a name on a document.  It was apparent at these regular visits that there was a void to be filled financially that was not being addressed by the state directly or by other organizations in the time frame needed.  This was the reason for Ride Life Cares  Inc.(dba Trike Life Cares Inc.)

Since October 2020, Marcy has been an avid recumbent Triker who would often bring her Shih Tzu Marley to share the ride along many of central Florida’s rails to trails.  It was the combination of both of her interests that created Trike Life Cares with the help of some talented people.  Because of their help it has evolved into Ride Life Cares Inc.  

Along with working full time at a multinational technology company, Marcy is completing her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, She is planning to continue her education with a Masters in Social Work  upon graduation.  But in the mean time, she also chauffeurs  Nicky to do visits through Vitas Hospice. 

“Nicky” is registered and insured through the Alliance of Therapy Dogs.

Kelly lives in North Carolina with her four mini dachshunds tyrants and her husband Scott. When she isn’t doing her fur babies bidding, working at a multinational technology company or helping Ride Life Cares, she enjoys boating on lake and reading when she has a quiet moment.

Kristi Hill

Board Member
Kristi is co-owner of a pet related small business in Florida with her husband, Scot. They have two children and 5 dogs. When Kristi is not volunteering her time raising orphaned wildlife, she enjoys spending time with her family. She, along with her children enjoy long trail rides on their recumbent trikes.

Harlee Guggisberg

Board Member

Harlee grew up in Winsted, CT. And currently, she resides in Bristol, CT with her husband, two children, and two German Shepherds (rescues).  Outside of work you will find her making baked goods for her employees, drawing portraits, scrapbooking, or arts and crafts projects with her kids. She is the newest board member of the Ride Life Cares and is eager to help expand into Connecticut to help fundraise in additional locations.

Harlee currently serves as an Operations Manager in the Department of Defense industry. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Southern New Hampshire University in Operations Management with a concentration in Project Management. The most rewarding part of her job, she says, is ensuring an employee is successful by assigning them to a role that best matches their strengths and weaknesses, and developing their skills to take on positions they enjoy.

We strive to provide what is needed to kids currently or previously involved in the family court system due to abuse or neglect.
