Teresa was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. She is currently completing her Master of Business Administration in Human Resource Management degree at UIW. She earned a Master of Human Resource Management from Argosy University and a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing from UIW. Her background is in education and finance. She has eight years of experience working in education and two years working abroad at an international school in Shenzhen, China. She worked as a licensed personal banker prior to entering the field of education. She enjoys spending time with family and friends and giving back to the senior community. Her son Ryan is her greatest blessing in life. She hopes to teach at the university level, and is planning to start a Doctor of Business Administration after completing her MBA.

For me, at UIW, the WORD is Discover. As students we seek to discover who we are and who we want to be. What an education can provide us and what we provide others with our education. How we will respond to challenges and how challenges can define us. Why faith, truth and service are core values and how they impact us as individuals and the communities around us. As an adult leaner, it is refreshing to see that we are not alone in our academic endeavors. We discover that there are many resources available and people to guide us along the way. Let us answer your questions and help you get started on your next academic journey. Our UIW family awaits you!
