She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Maryland (where she was also a cheerleader and a gymnast) and completed some graduate business administration coursework at the University of Baltimore. Her favorite hobbies include marathon running, bungee jumping, rock climbing, hiking and anything that challenges her (she recently learned how to snowboard).

Ad Club, Mothers of Multiples and the Annapolis Striders. Her favorite sport is long-distant running (she's completed 24 marathons, including ten Boston Marathons). Her hero is her mom who she says taught her to like herself, be kind and caring, but also competitive and confident. Trish believes she's ready for SURVIVOR: PEARL ISLANDS because her athletic skills make her a viable and useful tribe member.
