Trish trained as a teacher and worked in schools throughout the country, and internationally. Trish has taught locally across the Blue Mountains - in between work with former Members Bob Debus and Phil Koperberg.
Always an activist at heart, Trish also worked in women's services and advocated strongly for changes to domestic violence laws. She was the founding Co-ordinator of the NSW Women’s Information & Referral Service in the early 1990’s.
Trish is a fierce advocate for workers and community issues such as social equity, affordable housing & addressing homelessness, public transport and environmental protection.

Trish has been involved in many local community organisations such as the Blue Mountains Conservation Society and the Blue Mountains Unions Council.
Trish was re-elected in 2023 and continues to be a vocal, energetic, and active community advocate. One of her priorities is to see a new Hospital planned and built for the Blue Mountains community.
In May 2023, Trish was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Environment, Heritage, Climate Change and Energy, a role she feels extremely passionately about.
Trish is currently a member of the Legislative Assembly’s Select Committee on Remote, Rural and Regional Health and serves as the Deputy Chair of the Legislative Assembly Committee on Community Services.
