Trina was born and raised in Vancouver. She has dipped her toes in just about every industry. Her passion for Design began at a young age. She was heavily influenced by her parents who were both very creative people.
She began her career in the Fashion Industry at Blanche Macdonald where she studied Fashion Marketing. Although the Fashion Industry was exciting and held a lot of opportunity, Trina never truly felt that she found her niche.
From there Trina became a Hostess, Barista, Cruise Check-In Agent, Office Manager, and a Realtor’s Assistant. There was something all these jobs had in common; people. She really enjoyed interacting with others, and especially enjoyed Administration, however, still felt that she was missing one key component. She craved creativity.
Trina was introduced to FairTradeWorks, a growing start-up full of young, driven people. The Graphic Design Administrative Assistant role seemed to be the perfect fit for her, as it was a happy balance between administration and creativity. She looks forward to growing with the company!
Trina believes that…
FairTradeWorks is open to growing and evolving, which is very key in a start-up in an ever-changing market. They see a need in the Construction Industry and are developing a new type of experience.
