Trina earned her Masters of Education in from the University of Vermont where she did scholarly work on interracial relationships, dating anxiety, and lessons from sex therapy.

What makes Trina’s dating advice different? Her workshops teach people fun and practical ways to navigate their love lives with an identity-conscious lens.

In her 10+ years of dating and recent scholarly research on relationships, Trina realized that the best lessons about communication, boundaries, and healthy relationships were taught to her through her dating life. Later on as an educator, her students frequently came to her for dating advice. Trina's students often shared frustrations from partners, family pressure, cultural differences, and more. This inspired her to commit her career to helping people navigate the messiness, confusion, and love in relationships.
