Theresa came to the Sarah Dooley Center for Autism in December 2016 after teaching students with severe intellectual disabilities in Rochester, NY. She received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Maryland in 2008 and her Master’s degree in Special Education from Roberts Wesleyan College in 2011. Recently, she was able to partake in a research study with Indiana University Bloomington that measured the effects of improv comedy training on the social skills of students with Autism, and she looks forward to combining these two passions in Richmond Virginia.
