Founded in 2018 by Patricia Kapinos, Red Trail’s mission is to help organizations and small businesses achieve their goals through proposal and content generation. Patricia holds a B.S Agriculture and Applied Economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Patricia brings nearly a decade of corporate proposal experience as a Request for Proposal (RFP) writer in the public and private sectors. Her proposals have resulted in nearly $100 million of winning bids. 

Patricia has dedicated hundreds of hours volunteering to build and maintain her local off-road trails. Patricia was instrumental in reversing a decision by the Wisconsin DNR to close existing trail access at Blue Mound State Park. In 2014 she was recognized by her employer for her efforts with the Community Builder of the Year award.  

Patricia also served as the chair person of her employer’s Employee Philanthropy Committee from 2014 through 2018. In this capacity, she oversaw the evaluation and selection of millions of dollars of corporate grant recipients. 

Patricia is an avid mountain biker and is a veteran of over 25 races. In 2019, Patricia is producing her first race event.
