After earning a master's in journalism from Northwestern University in 2019, Trina has used her skills as a journalist to write grants for causes she believes in. When she's not helping local nonprofits advance their mission, she moonlights as a freelance journalist. There's no particular writing genre she sticks to; she'll cover anything that has a good story. In her free time, she enjoys working out, reading the latest beauty hacks, and binge-watching YouTube.


Trina has a B.A. in English from Rollins College and an M.S. in journalism from Northwestern University.
