Teresa is the administrative leader for a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) award focusing on improving the healthcare and health of older adults across Minnesota through education and community partnerships. Formerly I served at the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education as manager of the Nexus Innovations Network in Knowledge Generation.  In a previous role I lead the Minnesota training center for the national implementation of TeamSTEPPS, a curriculum aimed at optimizing patient outcomes by improving communication and teamwork skills among health care professionals.  I have past professional experience in technology staffing, hotel management and youth mentoring. 

I earned a master’s degree in public affairs from the University of Minnesota Humphrey School, focusing on public administration and health. I co-authored a capstone project, “Diagnosing Healthcare in America: Impacts of Immigrants and Occupational Licensing”. Additionally, I obtained a graduate minor from the Center for Spirituality and Healing. My interests include religious practices and their influence on health practices, maternal and child health, migration, and reducing health disparities.  I also have a certificate in Project Management from the University of Minnesota. I spend time away from the office with my children, spouse, and an overzealous vegetable garden.
