About Us

shoesHello and Welcome to the Sunnytrails Girl Scout’s Website.  We are glad you found us.  Our Service Unit is south of San Diego, California, boundries are Chula Vista and Bonita east of I-805, North of Main Street, and South of I-54.  We hope to be a source of information and communication to help you with local girl scout activities.  Here is the link to the San Diego Council Website.

On this site you will find news about events in our service unit, a special page just with Encampment information, an Activity Calendar, Contact Names for leaders within this Service Unit, and our Leaders Share discussion board as well as information about our different committees in the service unit.

You are invited to join other leaders and troop volunteers and parents of independent  Girl Scouts in the area at our service unit meetings on the third Thursday of each month (except for December, June and July) at 7pm at the Elk’s Club in Chula Vista on Telegraph Canyon Road.

Here at Sunnytrails we have three service unit managers on our leadership team! Marie Golembsky is the manager at the Daisy and Brownie levels. She can be reached at: managerdbr@gssunnytrails.com.  

Susan Leibold is our manager representing Juniors and Cadettes.

Susan“This is my fourth year as a girl scout leader, I’m having as much fun as the girls.  My girls and I are looking forward to more camping and are planning to bridge in San Francisco when we move from Juniors to Cadettes.

I am a native of Chula Vista and have a passion for helping girls succeed.  I am a mostly stay at home mom who works tax season with her husband.  When I was a nine to fiver I was in charge of motivating and leading many people and teams.  I am excited to be one of the leaders of the Sunnytrails Service Unit.”     You can email her at: managerJrCad@gssunnytrails.com

Trish Riley is our Senior and Ambassador Manager.  You can email Trish at: managerSrAmb@gssunnytrails.com


“This is my 5th year as the leader of Troop 5063, who just bridged to Ambassadors.  I have one 12th grader and four 11th graders All of my girls want to earn the Gold Award, and are either working on proposals or looking for projects.   They are raising money in order to go on a trip in either the summer of 2015 or 2016.   The girls love to do community service and hope to take on a different project each month throughout the year.

I was a Girl Scout as a child.  I made it to Cadettes.  I also had a Girl Scout troop of high school girls who were developmentally disabled, primarily mentally retarded, when I was in college (early 70’s).   We were in Anaheim, and while the troop was in existence it sold more cookies than any other troop in Orange County!  An interesting note, the Girl Scout Council refused to allow my troop to go to Girl Scout camp because they were developmentally disabled.  That, of course, would never happen today, thank goodness.

I’m an attorney working as the Director of Legal Affairs for a nonprofit corporation that provides mental health services, primarily to low income and indigent people throughout San Diego County on both an inpatient and outpatient basis.  The company is  Community Research Foundation, Inc.  I’ve been with the company for 17 years.”

We look forward to helping you in any way we can. We are passionate about Girl Scouts and about helping you Discover, Connect and Take Action! To report broken links or issues with the website please contact our webmaster Debbie Lechner at website@gssunnytrails.com
