DON'T JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT
"I had the opportunity to work alongside Theresa as her Creative Director for almost 3 years - on some fairly challenging accounts. During that time I learned Theresa was one of the most detail-oriented art directors I had ever worked with - and ten years later - she still holds top rankings. Theresa is a master at creating very efficient processes to handle challenging workloads. I quickly learned that her attention to detail went way beyond the nuance of smart and beautiful design work. It showed up in the thoughtful relationships she built with both clients, vendors and her team. Theresa, by nature, has a relaxed and calming personality but woven into that easy-going disposition is someone who is strategic, agile and deadline focused. When you have challenging assignment or product in development, Theresa is one those creatives you’ll want on your side."

"I had the pleasure to work directly with (and for) Theresa for a few years. She is a skilled Creative Director with an eye for detail and a passion for high-quality design. She is a compassionate manager who guides her team with clear and concise direction. Theresa is also a professional and persuasive presenter who performs well with internal and external audiences alike. Her creative and witty copywriting is a bonus talent that often pushes a concept or design to the next level. It’s always a joy to work with Theresa."

"Theresa has a wonderful way of seeing the big picture, thinking it through, and understanding the details as well. She knows how to give constructive feedback to make a project stronger and get the results she had in mind. I love working with confident, creative thinkers, who understand people as well as the project.
Theresa is the whole package and can execute. When I worked with her on Make A Wish and several DFW projects, there were many logistics and details. Theresa was on the ball and great at jumping in to make sure we walked away with beautiful, targeted creative."

"When I hear or see Theresa’s name, it puts a smile on my face. She was always so much fun to work with and not only were her concepts and designs original and on-target, but Theresa had such a compassion and joy for living that it fueled inspiration in people around her. She listened, she was engaging and she was always interested in cultivating and expanding not only her talents and reach, but her own personal growth. I am in awe at what she has accomplished and I wish she was still on my team today!"
Senior Print Producer
"I had the opportunity to work with Theresa as a vendor supplying photography, retouching and pre-press proofing. Our time together has spanned several places of employment and has lasted over a decade. It’s given me the opportunity to work with her on direct mail, print, outdoor, vehicle wraps, catalogs, large-scale photography and countless other projects. Her attention to detail and respect for others easily made her a favorite client for our team. She isn’t afraid to give her opinion but also respects the opinion of those she has hired. Even amid all the stress, we managed to have a lot of fun and pull off some pretty incredible things."

"Theresa reached out to us to work on an advertising campaign that would stretch over a few weeks. Her presentation of her goals for the campaign was clear, thorough, and inspiring. Theresa’s accessible and pleasant demeanor, her ability to guide the production without any issues arising, and her willingness to meet the challenges of the photographic shoot with a positive “get ‘er done” attitude, put the whole team at ease. Theresa not only made the experience a fond memory, the photography campaign is one we are proud to showcase in our portfolio."

"Theresa is the one of the few typography, paper and printing nerds left in the design community. She loves the history of design and is pristine about execution. She has a welcoming nature about her that seems to bring people together. She is a person you WANT to work with not someone you have to work with.
