Trish has been in the Department of Psychology at Marquette for over 8 years. She is the department administrative assistant and is the program assistant to the Doctoral program in Clinical Psychology. She has enjoyed nearly every minute of her time here. She is happily married to her husband, Curt, who is a firefighter/paramedic for the City of Greenfield. They have four beautiful kids. Their eldest, Colin, is a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps and has deployed three times. Presently, he is stationed in Washington, D.C.. Their son, Arie, graduated from UWM majoring History with a minor in Political Science. He is currently a graduate student in History at Marquette. Their daughter, Bree, is an Championship level Irish dancer and a graduate of the Bakery and Pastry Arts Program at MATC. Finally comes their 15-year-old daughter, Kailee, who keeps everyone busy playing with the Pride of the Midwest U14 softball team and swims with the Marquette Swim Club. She is a huge Brewers fan and, if you're not careful, will talk you into anything.
