  • I love working with The Fiery Feather! Theresa is a great thinker, an outstanding communicator, and an inventive problem solver. She’s got a keen understanding of process, knowing when and how things can go off the rails. And even more important, she’s a student of human psychology and organizational design, so she works with emotional intelligence (and grace under fire) to solve all kinds of business problems.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Theresa in several different contexts (business, non profit, education), and every time she impresses me with her ability to engage and facilitate individuals and teams, whether it’s around innovation, design thinking, sales, or organizational culture. She’s awesome at working with people and building their own capabilities.

As a strategic partner, her ability to take on all of my tangents and make directional sense of them is an art form few people have.

All of these skills combined make her an incredible friend and collaborator, a thoughtful team player, and a leader very worth of following.
