Tricia Thinnes

Project Manager

I am a Des Moines native and Drake grad. My family consists of my husband, John, and two daughters; Paige who is a 26 year old flight attendant and Charlotte, 19, who is a college student. We have 2 dogs (chihuahua and terrier), both of which are female. My poor husband, he is completely outnumbered! I have a passion for interior design and landscaping projects, travel, throwing parties and the impromptu kitchen dance party with my family.

You are a superhero. What power would you choose?
My husband calls me MacGyver because of my uncanny ability to fix things using 'unconventional materials'. That's pretty super.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
To learn how to sing... not whatever that thing is I do when I'm in my car.
