Trista remains involved in her kids’ activities – volunteering for school and Parent-Teacher activities and chaperoning field trips. When Trista manages to steal a few minutes of downtime, she’s usually running, exercising, reading, or listening to music. She enjoys cooking more with each passing year and has accepted the challenge of trying to find healthy meals that will be eaten without complaint! She lives in Hillsboro, NC with her entrepreneur husband, Dave, and their 3 kids.
