She joined JLL in 2012, bringing with her a wide variety of leadership experience. From 2007, she worked for Merck & Co., and Rohm and Haas Co. before that, in a diverse set of roles that have stretched from laboratories to the board room. 

Trish started her professional life as a chemist, working with research and business teams. The challenges chemistry presented – identifying patterns, solving complex problems – are skills she has found incredibly useful throughout her career. She moved into human resources in 1999, and developed a deep understanding of the value that talented people who are given clear opportunities to achieve their career ambitions can have on corporate success. In recent years, she has focused on JLL’s strategy to leverage an aligned approach to structure, processes and technology to create efficiencies throughout the business.

Trish earned a degree in chemistry from Michigan State University, a PhD in biophysical chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley, and an M.A. in clinical psychology from The Fielding Graduate Institute. Born in Okinawa, Japan, she currently resides in Pennsylvania.

An accomplished flutist, Trish is passionate about music, and sits on the board of the Bennington Chamber Music Conference.
