At News10 she has covered major breaking news traveling to Sandy Hook, Connecticut to report on the school shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary and traveled to Boston to report on the Marathon Bombings.
She has worked on a number of special reports including a series of stories covering the heroin epidemic in the Capital Region and school bullying issues, both of which were nominated for New York Emmy Awards.
Before calling Albany home, Trishna worked in Augusta, Georgia reporting and anchoring for WRDW and in Abilene, Texas where she covered breaking news and the crime and courts beat for KTXS.
She is a proud graduate of the University of Georgia, (Goooo Dawgs!) where she earned her B.A. in Broadcast Journalism.
