Trish started her broadcasting career at KRTV, the CBS affiliate in Great Falls, Montana as a reporter/photographer. There, she enterprised, shot, wrote and edited her own stories, many of which aired across the state. From there, she moved to beautiful Savannah, Ga. where she covered news in the Coastal Empire and Low Country. Trish helped to create and launch two new morning shows for the ABC and FOX affiliates, and anchored and produced them each day.
Trish was thrilled to come back to her home state in 2008 when she started working for WNEP in Northeastern Pennsylvania. She covered news in the Pocono region, Scranton, and eventually anchored the station's evening broadcasts. She anchored wall-to-wall coverage during Tropical Storm Lee in 2011, which caused historic flooding of the Susquehanna River and forced 100,000 people from their homes.
Trish grew up in Bensalem, Pa., and discovered her love of journalism in high school, writing articles for "Reality," the teen section of the Bucks County Courier Times. Trish is a proud graduate of the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism. During her first semester of college, watching the coverage of the 9/11 attacks solidified her decision to pursue a career as a journalist.
In her free time, Trish enjoys running, yoga and knitting. She lives in Bucks County with her husband, daughter and greyhound.
