Personal Life

Teresa loves running in local and regional charity running events, doing house projects, cooking, reading, true crime podcasts, outdoor activities, and cheering for the New Orleans Saints, the Kansas City Chiefs, the St. Louis Cardinals, and the University of Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles.

Legal Journey:

Teresa began her legal journey in consumer debt collections, where she gained a fundamental understanding and experience in the legal field. She moved on to personal injury law, where she found a greater appreciation in the legal field because she was helping individuals be justly compensated for their injuries, and she finally joined the Firm with the continued goal of providing valuable legal assistance to the Firm’s clients.
