Norma Pintar

Norma was born and raised in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, and moved to Boise at 19 years ago when she got married to her husband Kevin. They have two boys and currently live in Meridian. Since moving to America, she has been a volunteer. She became an American citizen in 2005 and loves this beautiful land.

Norma loves to dance her traditional Mexican dances, which she learned at the age of 5. When she moved to Idaho she founded two dance groups: the Hispanic Folkloric Dancers and The Traditional Mexican Dancers groups. In October 2012, Norma received the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts for my dedication and contribution to the Arts in Idaho.

She is currently serving her third assignment with the Idaho Children’s Trust Fund as a Training Coordinator. She says "it is an honor to spread the word and promote the health and well-being of children". Thanks to a St Luke’s,  and the Idaho Women Charitable Foundation grant, ICTF is bringing a program called Stewards of Children, which is designed to prevent and protect children from sexual abuse. The Treasure Valley Initiative operates in partnership with several organizations, cities, and schools, which will bring the program to employees and families they work with.
