Tricia is a fully-trained interior designer with more than 25 years in the design and construction industry. She received her Masters in Interior Design from Colorado State, after which she worked for Burkett Design in Denver, CO. As a Mainer at heart, Tricia returned to the Seacoast and worked at a Mechanical Engineering firm, where she became deeply knowledgeable in all aspects of the construction process, allowing her to be a key part of any design-build team. She was then recruited to join JSA Architects in Portsmouth, NH, where she worked for years before launching Tobey Design Group in 2000. Tricia's depth of knowledge allows her to represent her clients' interests with contractors and subs to bring their vision, design, and style to reality. In her spare time, she can be found gardening, cooking, kayaking, entertaining, and fearlessly taking on DIY projects at her home in Kittery Point, Maine.
