For many years Tricia worked for as a medical assistant in the Otolaryngology Department at Lahey Clinic.

Tricia’s greatest joy was her family. Taking Sunday rides to the beach or to view the beautiful fall foliage with her husband was the highlight of her week. She also enjoyed spending time at the beach, boating, ice skating and watching a tear-jerker movie on the Hallmark Channel. Tricia was always surrounded by family friends and loved enjoying a meal out with them or in the comfort of her home, with her animals. One of her most favorite times of the year was Christmas, where she would host a Yankee Swap Christmas Party for all of her coworkers at her home. Everyone enjoyed and remarked on how beautifully decorated her home was!
