Theresa joined KDP in 2009 as their IT Director, responsible for all aspects of their Information Technology, and was additionally engaged as head of Marketing for KDP in 2011. Until the addition of KDP's Boise, Idaho office in 2021, Theresa managed both IT and Marketing for the firm. Once KDP expanded to Boise and grew by nearly 40% in that year, it was clear that KDP needed to invest in additional personnel to effectively manage this expanded infrastructure. In 2022, Theresa pivoted to full-time engagement in the role of Marketing Director for the firm.
Although Theresa has a long career in IT--beginning with database design and programming in Los Angeles, and then her work in network administration, training and support with MicroAge Computers in the Rogue Valley--her roots go even farther back in Marketing. Her father was the head of marketing for a local manufacturer and her father-in-law started one of the first advertising agencies in the Rogue Valley. Her husband and her mother-in-law have also been involved in creating jingles and commercials for ad agencies and production companies all across the country. Theresa has been surrounded by marketing professionals all her life!
Theresa grew up in Ashland, Oregon and studied music at University of Oregon, eventually achieving her Bachelor of Music Performance degree from California State University, Northridge. During and after college she worked for many years as a free-lance musician in the Los Angeles area, and picked up programming and database design skills to augment her income. When she and her husband decided to return to the Rogue Valley, a career in technology was a natural choice.
Theresa and her husband, Sean, have three, lovely grown daughters. In her off time, she plays timpani for the Rogue Valley Symphony, extra percussion for the Britt Festival Orchestra, and drums & percussion with various musical groups in the Rogue Valley. She enjoys bicycling, traveling, reading, painting and spending time with her husband—especially on the Oregon coast.
