After enjoying a decade-long career as a wildlife biologist for both the state and federal governments, the covid-19 pandemic inspired Teresa’s desire for a change in career paths. As a field biologist, she always led an active, outdoor lifestyle, but the gym was never really a permanent fixture in her life. However, in 2017 she found the sport of powerlifting and has been hooked ever since!
Teresa’s passion for powerlifting has led her to secure 3 California state records and to become the only USAPL Certified Club Coach between the San Francisco Bay Area and central Oregon. She loves to learn and, under the guidance of her National and Worlds level coaches, is constantly pursuing growth in her knowledge and education in the sport and as a coach.
Teresa loves problem-solving and helping people correct their form to develop the most efficient, safe, and optimal technique for their individual body mechanics. Nothing brings her more joy and excitement than being able to help people realize their potential!
