Personal Teresa

Teresa and her husband have been married since 1985 and are the parents of 5 adult children, and grandparents to a growing number of delightful grandchildren.

Together they enjoy the busyness and laughter that their growing family brings into the family home.

During her spare time Teresa enjoys biking, walks in the park, gardening, hiking the Niagara Escarpment, Scrabble games or a competitive game of billiards or Pickle Ball and spending time relaxing with family and friends.

“Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.”
