Trish Farr is a native of Baltimore, Maryland, who has been involved in the pageantry industry for over 19 years. She is excited to serve as your America's Miss International Director. Trish was the original creator of the America’s Miss Pageant (AMP) and served as it’s National Director for several years, but had to take a break to take care of her aging Father (Pop). She, along with Rene, had a vision of involvement in a system that was a large organization devoted to giving back to their communities and providing a positive, non-discriminatory, pageant and talent focused venue for girls, women and men of all ages to compete, thus making the move to work with Rene on a bigger and better America's Miss/America's Talented Miss a true fit. She has judged pageants of all levels, served as judge’s chair and auditor, as well as supported many other systems by lending a helping hand. While Trish’s college education had her pointed toward elementary education, she spent most of her career in business management and training and development in the travel industry. Currently living in central Pennsylvania, Trish has 2 children. Jenny, 31, from York, Pennsylvania who works as a director for a large real estate firm, and Robby, 19, who is attending Drexel University in Philadelphia majoring in sports management. Trish took care of her 91 year old Father, who everyone lovingly calls Pop, for over 12 years. Trish is also currently the Digital Media Manager and business partner of Journease Travel Specialists in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
