About

I am 36, I have an amazing husband and a gorgeous 10 year old. I have a great career and a normal life. I’m a wife, a mum, a career woman. A daughter, a sister, a niece and now an Aunty.

I profess to hate footy, but barrack the loudest for my son’s teams and can name and recognise far more NRL stars than I’d like to admit. I cheer for all the kids not just my own, I talk to the mum’s, the dad’s, the kid’s…the opposition!

I love my job, I organise, I talk, I strategise, I plan, I dictate, I learn something new every day, I work with amazing brands, I feel indispensable (but know I’m not).

I am sarcastic, I am fun, I love double entendres, smart ass remarks and quick one liners. I am the one that fills in gaps in conversation, I am the one they say could talk under concrete.

I have one good shot at beating a rare cancer tumour – synovial sarcoma, in my throat. I have had a pharyngolaryngectomy.

    • Thank you so much for coming all the way to Rome, Ga via computer to visit and share with me. Keep your outrageous attitude going and your radiation trip will soon end. Then all you have to do is get over that. There’s always something to get over, isn’t there?

  1. hi Katrina. hope it all goes well for you. i am 11 months out from a total laryngectomy and it gets easier every day.I even started back to work on light duties a month ago.

    • That’s awesome news. Going back to work is one of the challenges I will have to face after Christmas. My job involved a lot of talking so will be interesting to see how much will need to change for me to still do my job well.

  2. Thank you for sharing your private moments Trina! You are a strong person and I admire your strength. WOW is all I have to say. Good on you – Keep speaking your mind my friend. Always here if you need anything. Michelle x

  3. Wow! I am so inspired by your attitude :) It gives me a real reality check & reminds me to find “silver linings” & fully appreciate the beauty in my life.

    Thank you so much for sharing your inspiring, heartfelt & lighthearted story & outlook – your family are blessed to have you <3
