“She’s… not like the others.”


That is what the kindergarten teacher told Trina’s parents, who said they were already fully aware. 


As a child, Trina enjoyed everything artistic – drawing, coloring, painting, sculpture, bits of paper, you name it.  She also liked writing business plans (long before she could write), developing monetary and postal systems, designing tree houses, and spending long hours by herself (both indoors and out), thinking and/or reading. Trina’s dad liked having her help in his workshop, or at the very least, did a fantastic job of pretending he did.  By the age of 12, Trina knew how to use various power tools (including how to take apart a drill press), basic wiring, a bit of plumbing, and (thanks to her mom) quite a bit of sewing. 

In college, these skills transferred into a studio art/theatre design double major (psychology minor) at Oberlin College.


As far as hobbies and skills are concerned, little has changed since Trina’s childhood.


Trina recently completed her fourth and final semester at Goddard College, pursuing a Master’s degree in Sustainable Business and Communities (with a focus on Social Entrepreneurship) with the hope of applying her skills to something useful. 


Trina lives in Oberlin, Ohio with her mom and two cats, and plans to someday have her office in a tree house.
