Teresa grew up on the family’s century old farmstead within the spokes of the Cedar-Dixon County Line in northeast Nebraska, which encompasses the Outlaw Trail, Highway 12. The rolling hills and winding roads were the landscape in which she worked by her father’s side rounding up cattle on horseback and becoming a steward of the land on a Farmall and Ferguson tractor. Her father offered a hands-on education through hard work and responsibility.
Teresa picked up a guitar and developed a true appreciation for many styles of music because of her mother’s influence. As a singer/songwriter, her original music stirs the heart with intimate songs of family, history, and love of country. Some of her originals, “Riding West”, “The Hopeful Cowgirl”, “Four Stars”, and others, have been heard over the radio airwaves.
