Trish is joining the Residential Life staff fresh off of a 2-year hiatus in Germany. Living abroad allowed Trish to be closer to her family and for her kids to become bilingual. Prior to Germany, Trish and her family lived in Massachusetts, where she worked as a music therapist at UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center, providing therapeutic intervention to hospitalized children. Music continues to play an important role in Trish’s life and she looks forward to exploring music-making opportunities here in Midcoast Maine. Trish is also the mother to an incoming freshman at LA, and is looking forward to settling down and unpacking after years on the move.
