About Our Founder
The Web Advisors would not exist today without the incredible hard work, vision, and tenacity of its founder, Trisha Larsen.
Trisha started her tourism marketing career in the golf industry almost three decades ago working in Kelowna at the Harvest Golf Club, then on to lead the sales & marketing at Predator Ridge Golf Resort in its early days. A move to Vancouver Island in 2004 connected her as a marketing consultant with a fledgling golf tourism marketing organization called Golf Vancouver Island.
From those early beginnings, and a family move back to the Okanagan, Trisha grew her agency, The Web Advisors, into a tourism marketing powerhouse that collaborates with clients throughout British Columbia across regions, sectors, communities and businesses.
Trisha was a tourism marketing leader in British Columbia, and her impact on golf and destination marketing has been instrumental in the growth of many organizations around the province. Trisha’s strive for success was tragically cut short in the fall of 2022 when her heroic battle with pancreatic cancer ended.
It is impossible to convey in words the enthusiasm to do great work that Trisha brought to every effort. Her energy, insight and drive will be sorely missed by her team and has been felt across an industry she was so passionate about. She was truly a special person that cared deeply about all those she worked with. In her honour, the team at The Web Advisors’ strive to continue providing our clients with the same level of skill, determination, and zeal as she did.
