Lungs are Theresa’s passion, both personally and professionally. She was diagnosed with mild asthma at age 8 and it turned severe when she was in her late 20s, and by age 30 was in the “severe persistent steroid dependent” category. Now 35, and after undergoing successful Bronchial Thermoplasty in the summer of 2015, Theresa has gone from needing 7 asthma medications down to 2. Theresa has been a Respiratory Therapist since 2004, and has over 14 years of experience with both direct patient care in the Hospital setting, as well as educating the community on asthma and lung disease. She has volunteered with the American Lung Association for many years. Theresa is happily married to her high school sweetheart, and they have 3 children. She enjoys playing guitar and leading an active lifestyle with her children.
