Trish Morille is an award-winning journalist and marketing communications consultant with more than two decades experience in media, public relations and marketing.  After a successful media career in print and broadcast journalism, Trish formed Morille & Associates and worked closely with a small client base focused largely on non-profit organizations.  Currently, she is the Executive Vice President of The Lester & Sue Smith Foundation, a private family foundation which has granted over $150 million to numerous non-profit organizations including Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children’s Cancer Center, Harris County Hospital District Foundation and Holocaust Museum Houston. 

In 2010, Sarah Fisher and Trish Morille co-founded  +Works, a Houston-based, grassroots, parent-driven non-profit organization that served as a catalyst for positive community change on bullying and other challenging issues facing children and families.  For more than seven years, Trish served +Works as Co-Founder and Executive Vice President on a 100% pro bono basis, with joy.  The organization was closed in 2017 and +Works continues to thrive on many of the 16 campuses that engaged in the community-impacting program.  Trish continues her advocacy of children, literacy and education through her service with the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation where she serves on the Executive Committee of the Ladies for Literacy Guild.  Her vision to reach low-income, at risk children through the power of literacy resulted in the creation of Houston’s first super library on wheels, the Curiosity Cruiser which debuted in 2017.

Trish is a founding board member of Dress for Success Houston and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Houston chapter.  She is an active member of the Breast Center Advisory Council at Baylor and serves on the Advisory Boards of The Baylor Partnership, Texas Children’s Cancer Center and Purple Songs Can Fly.  Trish has been married for nearly 30 years to Rock Morille, with whom she is raising two awesome young adults.
