Deputy Executive Director
Trinity Tomsic is deputy executive director of FFIS. Before that, Tomsic was a pretty big cheese in the Grants Management Division for Maryland’s Department of Human Resources where she was charged with managing more than $1 billion in federal health and human service funds. Tomsic also analyzed state budget and federal funding issues for the National Conference of State Legislatures and the National Association of State Budget Officers. She is the greenest person in the office, no, in the building, maybe in the city. She recycles, turns out the lights, grows her own vegetables, and spends most of her free time working on an educational farm. She loves dogs and chickens and they seem to love her back, though we’re not sure the dogs and chickens love each other. A Utah native, Tomsic holds a master’s degree in economics and a bachelor’s from the American University in Washington, DC.
