Administrator, President, Co-Owner
Teresa has a long career in home care, going back to when she was a teenager working as a Certified Nurses Aide at a local nursing home. Teresa worked as an Administrative Assistant and later Human Resource Associate for Classen Home Health after her return from the US Military. Later, Teresa worked as Executive Director at Bridges Cornell Heights, and then spent 4 years as General Manager at Comfort Keepers Ithaca. In August 2011, Teresa and her husband purchased Comfort Keepers Ithaca and began implementing their extensive experience to make it what it is today.
Senior care is something that Teresa has always taken pride in as her great grandmother and grandmother were owners and operators of a small retirement home in Ithaca prior to their passing. Teresa grew up in Ithaca around seniors, so spending time and working with Seniors is a natural comfort place for her. She has taken the best of the places she has worked and applied it to Comfort Keepers Ithaca, and she is very proud of the result.
