Thereasa enjoyed journalism classes in high school and photography has always been a fun and rewarding hobby for her. Her other love is working with children and for the last 17 years she has worked in the public education system working with students in intervention classes, after school programs and through the McKinney-Vento program.

She resigned from her position in education and signed on to be Living In The News’ new Editor.
