Carver & Associates

Trish’s energy coupled with more than 15 years of human resources experience helps her offer a fresh look at the people and management challenges that keep leaders awake at night.


Trish developed her HR expertise while at J.M. Huber Corporation, one of America’s largest family-owned manufacturing companies, where she balanced her career between learning and development, and human resource management.   She continued her work in human resources as an employee and then as a contractor with The Coca-Cola Company supporting the IT and Shared Services client groups, delivering training on performance management and interview skills, and leading restructure efforts for her client groups.


 To enhance her experience, Trish attained an MBA from Auburn University allowing her to provide business-changing guidance to a diverse set of clients in technology, real estate, consumer products and education.  A sample of projects include:

 corporate strategy development for a mid-sized privately-held packaging company helping to differentiate it from foreign competitors.

 company restructure for a defense contractor resulting in a leaner organization.

 process improvement implementation for the $290 million EMEA division of a technology company leading to improved customer service.

She uses her corporate knowledge and expertise in communication, change, project and performance management to become part of the team and pinch-hit for organizations to deliver just-in-time results.


In addition to an MBA from Auburn University, Trish holds an undergraduate degree from Indiana University.  She is a member of SHRM, ASTD, Rotary International and the Eufaula-Barbour County Chamber of Commerce as the Director of Community Development.  She attained PHR and Green Belt certifications, guest lectured at Kennesaw State University and Auburn University, and was a guest speaker for AARP.
