    Trina has an Associate Degree in Accounting from Bryant & Stratton and she attended SUNY Oswego, where she majored in Mathematics. She spent the last 29 years working for Byrne Dairy in their corporate office. Her first 11 years were in the convenience store operations as an Accounts Payable Clerk and then she migrated to the Byrne Corp. and for the past 18 years she continued working on Accounts Payable and also Payroll. She eventually took over the Payroll Administrator position where she made sure all employees in the production and distribution facets of the company were paid.
