Teressa grew up as a Navy brat. She traveled all over the coastal US with her family but was always based out of Charleston, SC where she was born and calls home. Teressa moved to Attica, IN back in 1995 but found herself going back to Charleston quite often but finally settled down in Attica with her High School sweetheart and they have been married since 1998. God blessed them with three beautiful daughters and one handsome son.
Teressa is a graduate of Ultimate Medical Academy and has an associate degree in Medical Billing and Coding, is a certified Animal Control Officer, and is also a certified Groomer. She has worked in the animal field for 14 years, which included being a vet assistant, grooming, managing Paws N Claws Animal Shelter, and heading up animal control in Fountain County. Teressa has been involved in the construction field since 1997 due to her husband and his family being contractors and received her Real Estate license in December of 2019. She found her love of real estate from traveling as a young child from home to home.
When Teressa is not working you could find her hanging out with her family. She enjoys traveling, the outdoors, remodeling at times, and animals of all kinds, especially her bulldogs. One of her biggest passions would have to be her love for English Bulldogs. She has shown and bred English Bulldogs since 2008 when her husband gifted her with her first Bulldog. Her and her husband can be found front and center at all their children’s many sporting events or singing and drama events. She also loves to listen to her daughter lead worship at her daughter’s church in Ft. Wayne.
Teressa strives to make a difference in people’s lives and was always educating and trying to reunite people with their furry friends when she was working Animal Control and believes she can continue that through Real Estate in helping people find their new homes.
