Hello!

My name is Teresa Peterson and it is my pleasure to serve as the Director of Operations for Sarah Noll Wilson. In my role, I enjoy working to ensure that the entire experience is effortless, energizing, and creates delight for our clients. I earned my doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Northern Iowa and I love working in learning and leadership development. I also enjoy reading, exercising, and cooking. I’m a dedicated tea drinker and I have a real soft spot for a good cheese plate. I indulge by binge watching The Crown, Victoria, Mad Men, and Downton Abbey.

WHAT MAKES ME CHRONICALLY CURIOUS IN LIFE:

So many things - probably too many to list without boring you. I am currently curious about living a more intentional, minimalist life, so I'm doing a lot of reading about that right now.

UNIQUE TALENT:

Perfect placement of Lego stickers :)

I HELP POSITIVELY IMPACT OUR LEADERS BY:

For me this work is personal. I was professional suffocated by bad managers. I have seen and felt the results of their negative impact firsthand. Terrible managers stifle growth, breed negativity, and can diminish your quality of life outside of work. I will help positively impact our leaders by expanding the reach of our company and our work in relationship and leadership development. I will be chronically curious in my own learning and the ways we operate and improve on a daily basis.

I PLAY FULLY BRAVE BY:

Asking questions and being relentless. I am determined to make a positive impact everyday. I refuse to let others define me, my work, or my path. I say no to things that don't serve me to make time for the things that do. I play fully brave when I challenge assumptions.
