Over a decade of agency experience — from traditional advertising to digital strategy — has given Theresa a vast toolkit of project management know-how. After traveling around the world for a year-and-a-half, she was inspired to lend her marketing acumen to local nonprofits and global NGOs, and has continued to work with both in the agency world.
For Theresa, project management is an art, not a science. Since every project is different with a variety of team dynamics and challenges, she believes that a cookie-cutter approach won’t cut it. And although she’s a wizard at tidying things up and keeping people organized, she loves connecting with her clients on both a professional and personal level in order to establish relationships of trust.
Outside of work, Theresa likes to explore and learn new things, from paddle boarding to home improvements and even a recent foray into clamming. She loves going on weekend adventures with her husband and young son to explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest, whether it’s spending time near the water or hiking in the mountains.
