Hi, I'm Trish
WHERE I COME FROM
My family has a history of military service, my grandfather and his siblings pooled their money after all serving in WWII to purchase our land in Kingston at the end of the war for my great-grandparents. During my senior year in high school, I joined the NH Army National Guard, and left for Basic Training in Fort Jackson South Carolina just a week and a half after graduation. I served with the 39th Army Band for twelve years.
I am a lifelong resident of Kingston, NH, and attended Bakie, Sanborn Middle, and Sanborn High Schools. Majoring in Biology, I graduated from Saint Anselm College and then continued my education at the New England College of Optometry in Boston. After receiving my Doctor of Optometry degree, I found my passion in teaching, and began teaching at the community college level.
I am an adjunct faculty member at Manchester Community College, teaching Anatomy & Physiology and College Biology.
I own a small business, Togatae Designs.
I serve as Chair of the Kingston Budget Committee.
I am the president of a 501(c)3 Non-profit organization, the Miss Exeter Scholarship Program, which is dedicated to providing college scholarships to young women in New Hampshire. We have awarded over $10,000 in the five years since we began.
I am a volunteer with many organizations, including the Community Childrens' Fund, raising funds and support to provide warm clothing and bedding for needy children in the greater Exeter area (including Kingston). Last year, we provided over $84,000 to 665 children.
Prioritizing Our Community.
I am dedicated to service: To my country, To my students, and To my community.
I believe in the American Dream, and know that I can help keep that dream achievable for New Hampshire's citizens by bringing a fresh perspective with common sense and an analytical mind to Concord.
