TEDxMoncton 2018: Cohesive Inspiration
TEDxMoncton is a growing brand of sharing ideas from a non-biased perspective. It’s a space where people can check their egos at the door, open their minds and hearts and get better together. This year's event is being curated to offer some insights on local and regional issues.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMoncton, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMoncton event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

A transplant to Moncton, Trish grew up outside Truro, NS. After high school, Trish moved to PEI to pursue an education in Accounting. Despite enjoying numbers, Trish realized she enjoyed people more and transferred to an Arts program to major in English and minor in Women’s Studies. She followed up her BA with a B’Ed in Primary Education with a specialization in International Education.
During her education degree, Trish was able to experience teaching at the Early Childhood level and truly loved it. Blessed with an employer who became an amazing mentor, Trish spent almost 10 years teaching at Campus Kids Childcare Centre at UPEI. After a short stint in the public school system, Trish became acutely aware of the need to rethink our current system to help our youth become engaged, confident members of society.
After officially moving to NB in 2013, Trish took a break from teaching children and began to informally teach adults in a completely unexpected setting: the retail market. In her current position, she helps people realize the importance of communication, physical fulfillment, and that we are not alone in our struggles.
Trish is passionate about teaching, particularly in the Sexual Health and Wellness realm, performing Burlesque, pole and aerial hoop fitness, and singing(even though she’s not very good). She is very excited to be joining the amazing TEDxMoncton team, and is looking forward to helping provide opportunities for open communication.
