Trina has over 18 years of experience in the fields of design, planning, and preservation. Beginning in Chicago, she worked on several local and surrounding area projects.  Trina moved to Omaha in 2005 and was employed here at APMA as an architectural designer where she worked on a wide range of mixed-use redevelopments in addition to new infill and adaptive reuse of various sizes of buildings in diverse urban contexts.  From 2011 until recently, Trina worked as an Omaha City Planner where she specialized in Urban Design and Historic Preservation project reviews and she administrated the Urban Design Review Board and the Landmarks Heritage Preservation Commission.
