SUMMARY

Trish Murphy embarked on a remarkable journey when she enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, serving as a mechanic. While stationed in Alaska, she honed her skills, maintaining and repairing complex machinery like generators, heaters, and hydraulic systems. This experience sparked her “How hard can it be” mindset. After serving four years in the Air Force, she chose to transition into civilian life, focusing on her growing family.

Their subsequent relocation to New Hampshire marked the beginning of Trish's commitment to homeschooling her children, a dedicated effort that spanned 13 years until her daughter's graduation. Her teaching philosophy emphasized fostering a love for lifelong learning in her children.

Capitalizing on the opportunities offered by the Montgomery GI Bill, Trish obtained a degree in Marketing. In 2016, she established her own agency, 'Marketing Smarty Pants.' Her narrative about steering this business venture through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic promises to strike a chord with fellow entrepreneurs.
