A Word from Trish
I moved to Bellaire in 1994. We relocated several times for my husband's business through the years, but made a crazy promise to move back to Northern Michigan when our oldest daughter was entering high school. After 7 moves, we came back for Kelli's freshman year! I attended Miami University in Ohio, and was a member of the Chi Omega Sorority. My educational background is education, outdoor science and graphic design. A perfect storm for living and working up north!
I love my community, and give back as much as possible. I photographed our public school sports program, was a member of the Bellaire School Board, planned proms, and supported anything to enhance our high school students.
I have 2 daughters, Ryan and Kelli and a great guy I've been married to FOR EVER! hat would be Doug. They are amazing human beings. We have a mini beagle, Ringo, who helps with advertising our brand. (he has his own wardrobe. He's a bit spoiled) We enjoy boating, fishing, and solving the world problems with a good beverage and good company!
