Here is a glimpse of what Trish shared in the interview.

“In challenging times there are always competing interests with various constituencies inside organizations. To manage and balance these interests one must offer all individuals dignity and respect. This is accomplished by listening to what they believe. This keeps communication lines open to deal with the various interests.”

“To compete in today’s regulated environment, each company first has to make the decision if they want to play in a regulated environment. You cannot do business where you cannot make the compliance commitment. You have to understand the compliance risks and make a decision about the costs.”

“As a cancer survivor, I learned that you do not control the future, but you have control of your choices. When adversity arrives, you have to be an advocate for yourself. You have to understand the choices, consider the risks, then have the courage to make the decisions and take the actions.”
