Personal

Teresa is a Columbus native and life-long Buckeyes fan.  After college, she moved to New York for a position as a Group Sales Executive with the NHL’s New York Islanders, before transitioning into the legal field.  However, she always remained true and loyal to the Columbus Blue Jackets and knows that one day they will bring the Stanley Cup to Columbus.  Teresa rowed crew for eight seasons in high school and still attends local regattas and participates in alumni races when the opportunity arises.  She has been an avid fly-fisherwoman since she was eight years old and attempts to fish every Sunday, weather permitting.  Her dream is to retire out west and spend her days as a fly fishing instructor.
