My husband and I moved to Richmond in 2015. We have two grown sons who live in Denver and Washington DC.

Promoting and educating my heritage, Indonesia, and Asian culture to the community has always been important to me.

As AASoCV’s Program Chair, I have a great platform to support my goal and give back to the community. Additionally, I joined a traditional Indonesian musical ensemble, Gamelan Raga Kusuma at University of Richmond.

Moving to the USA in 2004, I’ve lived in Carlisle, PA for three years before moving to Richmond with my husband who took a teaching position with Richmond Public Schools.

We have two children (one is in college and the other in middle school). As a VCU graduate in Accounting, I currently work at Colliers International as a Senior Property Accountant.

Joining AASoCV in 2021 allows me to give back to the community and be part of a great cause.


Trisia moved to Virginia from Indonesia in 2020. Together with her husband, Dustin they have 4 children.

In 2022, having previously earned a bachelor’s degree in business management, she was offered and accepted the opportunity to pursue her career in accounting.

Prior to moving to the US, Trisia had worked as a Corporate Wholesale Division Manager for the leading lifestyle retailer in Indonesia.

In 2022 she began serving on the AASoCV’s Board of Trustees representing the Indonesian community. She expects to contribute and give back to the community.
