Trish is currently the Director of Research & Operations for TCG. Prior to her tenure at TCG, Trish was the Director of Marketing Services for the Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc, the world's leading owner and operator of merchandise marts, design centers, and trade shows.
Trish has also served as the Director of Marketing and Event Services for CompuSystems, Inc., the Inspire Design Show in Las Vegas, and the International Casual Furniture & Accessories Market.
Trish has a lifelong career full of experiences related to successfully directing and managing hundreds of trade shows, working with thousands of exhibitors and vendors, and streamlining the burgeoning processes of both by utilizing innovative technology.
Trish has a degree in Business Administration from Robert Morris University as well as an unaccredited degree in managing a large family. Trish often contemplates that the trials of managing large events over the years have become second nature to her, but managing her large family, well, she's still learning how to perfect that.
She has a lovely cabin in Wisconsin that she escapes to as often as possible. When escaping, Trish simultaneously feeds her acute addiction to dark chocolate from Uncle Tom's cabin, a mainstay in her sleepy, Wisconsin hideaway community.
