“Whether it’s solving a design challenge or collaborating with a project team, there is something new to be learned on every project. That creative process of challenge and discovery coupled with bringing ideas to reality is really exciting.”
A member of the Dykeman team since 1991, Trish is a thoughtful, dedicated, and versatile team leader. She has an extensive project portfolio that includes K-12 schools and commercial projects in Washington and Alaska. While she has worked on a wide variety of projects including retail, commercial, and residential, she is the most enthusiastic about her work on schools. She is passionate about the impact design can have on student learning and is continually researching sustainable strategies to improve the learning environment.
A skillful collaborator, her ability to build positive relationships with team members – clients, consultants, and contractors – enhances every project in which she is involved. “I love that I get to come to work every day and surround myself with a brilliant, creative team of people. After all these years they really have become like family. I value the relationships with my clients. I love that I get to combine my passion for art and building/creating – two of the influences from my childhood – in the work that I do.”
When not juggling project responsibilities, Trish enjoys spending time with her family and her four cats and can be found gardening, cooking, practicing photography, painting, and hiking. She is also fond of anything related to her native New England.
