Through building personal connections and leading constant communication, Trina keeps our clients happy and growing.
Trina joined the Perkins crew in 2001, and today serves as a key player in our Real Estate & Construction Practice Group. Her mantra: “A career is built on character and an unrelenting focus on lasting relationships and personal connections.” Whether sharing travel stories or business plans, Trina keeps the communication flowing with her clients. A Portland State grad, her primary emphasis includes business advisory services, tax planning and compliance work for closely-held businesses with expertise in partnerships and limited liability companies. She also works with manufacturing& distribution clients and high net worth individuals. In a constantly changing and diverse industry, she loves that the work stays fresh and interesting.
An avid sports fan, Trina takes in as many games as she can—professional football and basketball, especially. She’s a loyal Chicago Bears fan, staying true through thick and thin. A high school senior trip took her all the way to the Windy City to see Walter Payton play for the last time on his home field. Trina is also a dedicated concert-goer, often gathering family and friends to see iconic bands and artists across a variety of genres, including country, classic rock, pop, and more. In recent years, Trina’s grandson has taken center stage in her life, and he’s never far from her side. Regardless of what’s on the social calendar, spending time with her family always comes first.
