Meet Teresa

Teresa joined the TWB family for our first ever Summer session. As a mother of two, it was hard for her to see her kids turning to her sister for support, which led her to wanting to better herself. She was able to open up to her new support network and listen to the other women’s advice. We are so proud of how far Teresa has come. Currently she is working for Together We Bake part-time and continues empowering the women she works with! Read more about Teresa’s story below.
