Tricia Thinnes

Project Manager

I am a Des Moines native with husband, John, and two daughters; Paige who is 23 and Charlotte, 16. We have 3 dogs (two greyhounds and a terrier), all 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 will often times find me watching bad reality TV shows while drinking cheap Pinot Grigio. No shame in my game.

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.
