She is a first-generation college graduate from the University of Washington where she was active in building Pacific Islander community on campus as well as bringing awareness to Pacific Islander representation in higher education to high school students.

After graduating college Trisha served two years as an AmeriCorps member for Community In Schools of Federal Way the same elementary she attended when she was younger. In that role she was able to support underserved students and families beyond the classroom. Trisha has become passionate about helping others become the best version of themselves and enjoys the connections she’s able to make through relationship building. After some time working outside of youth engagement, she is excited and ready to get back to it as she joins Summer Search.

Outside of work Trisha likes to unwind by going hiking, painting, taking care of her plants and hanging out with her family and friends.
