tricia tobey

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.

Katherine joined Tobey Design with years of hospitality experience – one of our specialties! Her eye for innovative design is coupled with a keen understanding of operational needs and challenges found in hospitality and office settings.

After growing up in New Hampshire, she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Connecticut College, where she was able to pursue her love for design and travel. After graduating, Katherine worked internationally in Southeast Asia and Europe. Her local roots coupled with extensive travel lends a globally inspired twist on a classic New England design style. Her expertise include AutoCAD, SketchUp, Adobe Creative Suite, marketing, project management, and graphic design. In her free time, Katherine loves to paint, ski, cook, and (you guessed it!) travel.
