A Bay Area native, Teresa moved to Los Angeles to pursue her MBA at Pepperdine University's Graziadio School of Business in Malibu. After graduating, she worked at a number of entertainment companies including MySpace, 20th Century Fox, and NBC in various marketing & publicity roles. Inspired by her family’s entrepreneurial spirit, she started her own social media and digital publicity company, Digital Candy PR in 2010.  Digital Candy PR allowed her to truly touch upon her passion, providing exposure to trailblazers in fashion, art, lifestyle, and entertainment, through social media.

Teresa currently manages Digital Publicity at NBC where she handles weekly social media activations with the cast & producers from the network's primetime shows.
