Teresa’s love of organizing was born while she lived overseas in Hong Kong, England, and Singapore. There, her family moved 10 times in 17 years, and it became common to leave one apartment in the morning and come home to another apartment, fully organized, in the afternoon. As an organizer, Teresa advocates for minimalism and functionality in the home.
Teresa has a B.S. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education, Masters in Psychology of Education, and an Advanced Graduate Degree in School Psychology. In September 2000, she founded Hong Kong Academy, where she was responsible for every aspect of the school and its staff. Today Hong Kong Academy is an International Baccalaureate World School from which many other schools have learned their best practices. She currently works with both students and parents to organize their home learning environments to maximize academic success.
After conquering the management of her own personal health issues, Teresa has become an expert in wellness, utilizing her knowledge of medical organization techniques to help individuals and their loved ones with chronic or short term health issues. Since moving back to the Unites States in 2008, Teresa has served on the boards of several charitable organizations, raised her two children, now adults, and become an empty nester with her husband, Jon.
