Trish is passionate about community, social media engagement and return on relationships. From the time she launched her 1st website in 1997, Trish has been a very active blogger. Today, she not only heads up the NC Blogger Network, she runs DayngrZone Media a digital marketing, advertising, and design boutique, located along North Carolina’s beautiful Crystal Coast.

In addition, she’s founded chapters of Geek Breakfast and Social Media Club, to help unite the area’s tech community. As if that weren’t enough, Trish is also the founder of eMail Our Military, a site that supports military service members through email and social media, and she’s the co-founder of East Coast NC, a local lifestyle brand bringing the best of where to go, what to see, and what to do along North Carolina’s East Coast.
Most importantly, she’s a mom to three amazing kids, an adventure-seeker, and loves connecting people together. When she’s not online, she enjoys dabbling in digital photography, traveling, reading, and spending time with her kids.
