After a career as a financial entrepreneur and executive in 2012, Teresa transitioned to serve her alma mater. Now, with more than a decade of fundraising experience and increasing responsibility, she enjoys interacting with and supporting current students. After fundraising for the Berea College Concert Choir trips, she traveled to Spain and Portugal and, more recently, to Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, and Ireland, introducing new audiences to Berea College. She served as the lead fundraiser for the MAC Natural Sciences and Health Building. Teresa enjoys working alongside dedicated faculty, staff, donors, and volunteers to help provide educational opportunities for the best and brightest of low-wealth, high-potential students from Appalachia and beyond.

Teresa hails from Frenchburg, KY, in Menifee County, located in the heart of Appalachia. She graduated from Berea in 1984 with a B.S. in Business Administration. As a Berea student, Teresa worked as a teacher’s assistant in the English department, a Hutchins Library associate, tutor, Boone Tavern server and front desk clerk. She notes these positions provided a sound foundation and professional preparedness for her career.

Teresa has been married to her husband, Roxy, since 1992. They have two adult children, Isaiah and Isabella. The family loves to travel, shop, hike, and host gatherings together. Beyond work, Teresa volunteers to help those in need. She is also a leader in her local and church communities. She is a board member for Christian Appalachian Project.
