Patricia Maria "Trish" McCoy is one of the main characters on Austin & Ally. She is a 17-year-old girl, a fashionista who becomes Austin Moon's manager and friend. She is also Ally's best friend since kindergarten. She's known to wear a lot of crazy uniforms because she goes through lots of jobs and gets fired very quickly. She tends to get annoyed with Dez often; they are currently frenemies. Trish is the type of person who loves having a loud outfit. She can be a bit bossy and lazy, but always means well and looks out for those close to her. She is a part of Team Austin and manages the group well.
Trish can occasionally be selfish, but overall she's a great friend. Her jobs are known to frequently change, as she would get fired due to lack of discipline at work; however she takes her job as being Austin's manager very seriously, as she said that it's the only job she ever liked, in "Managers & Meatballs". Throughout the series, she gets more serious about managing and expands her clients to bigger stars, such as Boynado. She is the wife of Chuck.
Trish is portrayed by Raini Rodriguez.
Trish is portrayed as loud, lazy, obnoxious, fiery, and usually selfish when it comes to money. However, she's extremely loyal to her friends and shows deep compassion for them in their times of need. Trish is always there to keep them on the right track and not let their deficiencies get the better of them, whether it be Austin's immaturity, Ally's dreaming nature or Dez's eccentricities and stupidity. Despite, being feisty, she's shown to have vulnerable side, as seen in "Beauties & Bullies", which depicts Trish being bullied for getting the lead role of Sleeping Beauty and breaking down in tears.
She's shown to dislike labor of any kind and is often seen to only take initiative in things she truly cares for, such as fashion, managing tactics, and her friends or family. She's also a bit self-centered and loves the spotlight when it's on her, though for the most part she's perfectly fine in the sidelines. Her temper is also shown to be fiery and everyone knows that.
In Season 2, she also becomes Ally Dawson's manager after she conquers her stage fright. She usually gets fired from her jobs, but always gets new ones. Trish likes being lazy and not doing her job, though the only job that she could keep for so long was Austin and Ally's manager. She and Dez usually fight a lot, and have kind of a "frenemy" relationship.
