A veteran high school English teacher, Teresa learned about the BCCA through its annual holiday party for the children. Impressed by the spirit of giving instilled in the children at the event and the BCCA’s commitment to educating the children of backstretch workers, she became first a volunteer and then joined the board, serving on the scholarship and development committees. Teresa is also a freelance turf writer, contributing to a variety of publications in and outside of the racing industry. She serves on the Development and Scholarship Committees.
