Meet The Journalists: Trevor Montgomery & Robin “Bubbie” Montgomery
Trevor Montgomery runs Riverside County News Source and Shasta County News Source. Additionally, he writes for Riverside County based newspapers Valley News, The Valley Chronicle and Anza Valley Outlook and also writes for Bonsall/Fallbrook Village News in San Diego County.
Trevor spent 10 years in the U.S. Army as an Orthopedic Specialist before joining the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department in 1998. He was medically retired after losing his leg, breaking his back and suffering both spinal cord and brain injuries in an off-duty accident.
During his time with the sheriff’s department, Trevor worked at several different stations, including Robert Presley Detention Center, Southwest Station in Temecula, Hemet/Valle Vista Station, Ben Clark Public Safety Training Center and Lake Elsinore Station, along with other locations.
Trevor’s assignments included Corrections, Patrol, DUI Enforcement, Boat and Personal Water-Craft based Lake Patrol, Off-Road Vehicle Enforcement, Problem Oriented Policing Team and Personnel/Background Investigations. He finished his career while working as a Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Investigator and was a court-designated expert in child abuse and child sex-related crimes.
Trevor has been married for more than 27 years and was a foster parent to more than 60 children over 13 years. He is now an adoptive parent and has 13 children and 14 grandchildren.
Robin Montgomery served her community as a volunteer on the Riverside County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse. She was assigned to the Hemet Station during her time as a Mounted Posse member. Her patrol areas included Hemet, San Jacinto, Banning, Perris, Idyllwild, Coachella and other surrounding areas.
Robin has been married for more than 26 years. She was a foster parent to more than 60 children over 13 years. She is now an adoptive parent and has 13 children and 10 (soon to be 12) grandchildren.
Robin has written feature articles for Valley News and Menifee Sourcebook and she loves writing her “Breakfast With Bubbie” and “Dragonfly Moon” columns because they give her an opportunity to connect with people and let them know they are not alone in their struggles. She also values her column because she wishes she had been able to turn to someone for unbiased advice when she needed it the most.
Robin has had feature length articles published in Valley News, Menifee Sourcebook, RCNS and SCNS.
