“InsightPact allows me to be me, 100%”.
It allows space for learning by not knowing everything all the time.
If I were to describe InsightPact, it would be: “This is an organization that values the well-being of its people first and foremost.”
A bit about me.
I was a very social and active kid way back in school. Imagine inter-school volleyball leagues, dance competitions and spelling bees. Yep, you can say I’m a bit competitive too!
I believe that stage in my life shaped the interests in all of my life pursuits. And of course, having a fair share of learnings from co-developing businesses in various industries - creative, restaurant, fitness and edtech over the last 10 years really molded me to who I have become and helped me find my one true passion - wellbeing.
Okay, wellbeing AND traveling. That’s two! I mean, what’s not to love about traveling? In 2017 while I was solo back-packing Asia-Pacific, I had this aha moment while meditating in a park in New Zealand. “Why not find something meaningful to do where I can combine wellbeing and travel?”
Fast forward 2 years, I started a travel agency that provided wellbeing retreats. Just before I had a return of investment, the pandemic came. The world changed in a snap. And what did I do? I gave up. Kidding!! I still pursued my passion.
I moved temporarily to Dubai and then to Thailand while facilitating wellbeing workshops for moms. And now I have InsightPact! Travel + wellbeing + social impact. What more can I ask for? My life is full of surprises! Where could I be next year?
Where am I from?
My dad is German, my mom is Spanish-Filipina. I used to call Manila my home since most of my adult life I’ve spent there. But home really is wherever my family and I are together. And that’s Phuket for now.
Easy question. It aligned with my wellbeing goals.
Funny, it was actually an accident finding InsightPact. I was browsing through Linkedin for some interesting roles in Thailand and I put the keywords, “wellness”, “business development” and “remote work”. And ta-da magic!
I knew it was a match made in heaven because of the amount of focus they placed on “culture fit” during the interview process.
The book that changed the way I think.
54321 by Mel Robbins – it shares this brilliant technique on how anyone can start doing something even if they can’t find the motivation to do it.
It resonated a lot since I’m a mom, a wife, a coach, a chef (in my little way), a friend, a colleague, a team member… I wear many hats!
This book helped me be more intentional and present when switching hats.
How I practice well-being & wellness in my day-to-day life.
The 5 non-negotiable things in Trish’s day :

3. Meditating, could be a simple breathwork, a mental clarity exercise or simply appreciating the beauty of nature around me.
4. Getting enough sleep including naps if I need to
5. Smiling at myself in the mirror
