Tricia comes to Athena with a communications background and an enthusiasm for seeing companies through early stages of growth. She has held management roles in consumer insights at Rent the Runway, and later as program manager for WeWork Labs.

Tricia's work experience developing dynamic and plugged-in community networks impressed her with the importance of aligning operational and strategic scale with effective communication, and how that synergy leads to better outcomes overall. She is eager to apply these lessons to programs under Athena. Tricia graduated from Providence College with a B.A. in English.
