Theresa grew up in Buffalo and then Hong Kong, before returning to the U.S. for college. She relocated to New York in 2005 and started attending Redeemer later that year. Theresa has worked in various ministry areas at Redeemer including with the short-term missions team and on Questioning Christianity — she joined the East Side team in 2021.
She met her husband, Brendon, through InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at Northwestern, and they enjoy volunteering together at IVCF retreats for the NY/NJ region. They attend Redeemer West Side and also lead and host a community group in Hamilton Heights. Theresa enjoys drawing, photography and watching sci-fi action movies, although she now spends most of her time checking out neighborhood playgrounds with her young son.
