Trumbull is trained as an architectural historian and never veers far from her chosen path, maintaining a love of architecture and, in particular, planned communities such as Sunnyside Gardens in Queens, NY. While living in Chicago she became a docent extraordinaire for the Chicago Architecture Center’s Architectural River Cruise. Nurturing a love of her interest in medicine, she enjoyed a career in academic medicine for twenty years of her life in the role of Strategic Planner in a plethora of top notch schools of medicine throughout the US, including UPenn, Stanford, UCSF, UChicago, and Northwestern. She recently retired from Stanford University, her most beloved academic institution, where she worked in the Distinguished Careers Institute, a program for people in later life returning to campus for a year or more to reflect upon their lives and reassess their purpose, wellness, and community. She and her husband live in Berkeley, California, in the ninth of nine houses they have renovated throughout their lives together. Her children, Daniel and Bettina, have brought tremendous joy to their lives.
