Where are they now?

Trahan H. Whitten graduated from Park City High School in 1983. During his junior and senior years he was part of the tennis team, which won the 1A state championship in 1982. There were three individual championships including Trahan’s win at number two singles.

He attended the University of Utah where he earned a BS degree in microbiology with a minor in chemistry in 1988. He went on to receive his Masters Degree in business administration, admitted to the Beta Gamma Sigma academic honor society, from Colorado State University in 1992.

Trahan joined KPMG, one of the "Big 4" public accounting firms in Los Angeles eventually moving up to lead the health care finance and reimbursement practice for the Western Region.

In 1999 Trahan joined Ernst & Young, the largest of the "Big 4" public accounting firms in health care, who employs 107,000 people in 670 locations in more than 140 countries as the leader of their Western Region Health Sciences Advisory Services (HSAS) practice. Trahan was admitted to the partnership in 2003. His responsibilities increased July 1, 2006, when he was asked to lead the Regulatory Reporting and Compliance Service Line of Ernst & Young’s HSAS practice in the United States.

Trahan lives in Coto de Caza, Calif., with his wife, Kristen, and their two children, John and Sarah, but has always considered Park City "home" and comes back as often as time permits especially during ski season. He remembers his friends and classmates and would like to hear from them.

His mother and stepfather, Gretta and Paul de Groot, are long-time residents of Park City.
