Teresa joined The Magdalen House in June 2019 after twenty-five years of experience working in the real estate industry. She was brought on as a Coordinator to help with our residential program, First Step. She is an alumna of the First Step Program at The Magdalen House and now works as a Program Manager. She volunteered extensively in 2018 as an overnight volunteer and also within Maggie’s Women’s Group.  She loved The Magdalen House so much, she never left after completing her program. Teresa carries the message and sponsors women in different treatment centers across the DFW area. She feels she owes a debt of gratitude to the ones who mentored her and showed her how to recover. Had they simply gone on with their lives and just forgotten people like her, she wouldn’t be here today.  Her gratitude begins with The Magdalen House. She is grateful for the leadership that guided her to now happily manage First Step, where she gets to pay forward the experience she has gained since joining The Magdalen House team.

Outside of work, Teresa is committed to the recovery community and to sponsoring women. She has one daughter and is grateful that recovery gave her a second chance to be a better Mom.
