Theresa, an alumna of Stanford University, is a native of San Jose. After raising her family, Theresa turned her attention to advocacy for education and literacy in her community. In addition to spending over a decade as a volunteer tutor and mentor in several ESL and low-income schools, she has also served on the Board of the San Jose Public Library Foundation since 2004. More recently, Theresa has joined Cancer CAREpoint’s Board and is now working closely on how best to partner and expand CCPs services within underserved communities. As someone whose family has been deeply affected by cancer, Theresa is passionate about the opportunity to combine two of her interests – education and giving back to the community – with Cancer CAREpoint's mission. During her free time, Theresa enjoys taking university level history seminars, keeping active with Crossfit, and traveling with her husband and family.
