Certified Nurse Practitioner
For more than a decade, Theresa has worked with women while specializing in gynecology, reproductive health & family planning. She is a compassionate provider and committed to delivering quality, evidence-based care to her patients.
Theresa is passionate about education and collaboration. She says, “The opportunity to educate women and be a partner in their healthcare is my calling. When a patient has solid information and understands all of her options, she is empowered to make decisions that can help her meet goals and live a quality life.” This philosophy is Theresa’s mantra. “By acting as a resource and providing valuable information – I feel I can really make a difference in my patient’s lives.”
What her patients say
Theresa is so easy to talk to. Her patients often say similar things about her care and the way she treats them:
"I always feel like I’m being well taken care of."
"So wonderful to talk with. Love her energy. I’ve only seen her a few times but she speaks to me as if we have known each other for many years."
"Very personal treatment. Teresa listens and knows what is important to me."
"She’s very understanding and patient and has answers for me. She reassures me that I’m not the only one going through this and that it’s normal AND there are treatments available that make a difference."
"My experience with Theresa was exceptional. She answered all my questions and handled my procedure with the utmost care and attention to detail. Her friendly manner put me immediately at ease. I would recommend her enthusiastically. So thankful Minnesota Women's Care has providers like her."
