She’s moderated a congressional debate and has appeared on CNN and CSPAN. She’s also hosted multiple telethons, Boilermaker live coverage, and American’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk.

After leaving the news business, Teresa worked as the Director of Marketing for Presbyterian Homes and Services and was the press secretary for a 24th Congressional District candidate.
