Trisha is also the founder and director of The Alliance of Professional Health Advocates, an organization which supports the business needs of private patient advocates, helping them help the patients who need their assistance. The Alliance of Professional Health Advocates' members are the engine behind, a directory that helps patients and caregivers find the help they need.

Her first book, written to empower patients, teaching them to stick up for their rights and take responsibility for their medical care to improve their chances for a good medical outcome, and is titled You Bet Your Life! The 10 Mistakes Every Patient Makes (How to Fix Them to Get the Health Care You Deserve). It was originally published in February 2010. A second, revised and updated version of You Bet Your Life! was published in 2013.
