Teresa had an early introduction to mining through her father’s career as a geophysicist. As a toddler, she was carted through interior British Columbia to various mineral exploration sites, including what eventually became Hedley’s Mascot Gold Mine. Her father changed careers long ago, but Teresa retained an interest in geology, and is keen to learn more about the different factors affecting resource commodity markets.
An avid writer and voracious reader, Teresa recently graduated from the University of British Columbia where she majored in English Literature. Since then she has pursued writing in many forms, including novel writing, freelance ghost writing, and blogging for The Breakfast Courier, a startup company in Vancouver. When she is not writing, Teresa can be found on the ski hill or volunteering in local schools.
