Trish has a love of food running through her veins. She was raised in the kitchen, where she loved cooking and baking alongside her mother, and it was clear from a very young age that she would end up with a career in the food service industry.

After starting at Brandon University as a teenager, working casually for banquets and special functions, Trish has moved her way up through the kitchen and has worked in almost every position there. For the past 14 years she has been Food Service Clerk, giving her the pleasure of being involved in so many of the major events that happen on campus, including Homecoming, Convocation, banquets, and hosting events such as the Special Olympics.

Today, she is looking forward to the new opportunities as Food Services at Brandon University continues to evolve and grow.
