Candidate for Western Australia
Trish has been married to her husband Paul for 19 years and is the proud mother of two teenage sons Jacob and Luke. Trish resides in the northern suburbs of Perth.
With a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry (Intercultural), Trish co-founded a church and charity, where she was CEO of i60 Community Services Inc, for over 7 years. In that time Trish helped develop multiple community programs, including an emergency relief program, which at it's busiest has supplied over 100 000 meals annually for families across Perth's northern suburbs. Trish has also been responsible for creating programs like the Fit 4 Work Program, which has sought to assist people in moving from chronic unemployment into sustained and fulfilling vocations.
In January 2018 Trish moved into the corporate sector after establishing Arise ATSI Corporation, which seeks to close the gap between the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and mainstream Australia through community development programs.
Trish has worked tirelessly to make a positive contribution to community development across the region, with her most recent volunteer position being the Wanneroo Christmas Lunch Committee Chair for 2018.
Most recently, Trish has been working in various roles with the Federal Government.
