She worked most of her years in the accounting field and does not consider herself a technical person, but she saw the opportunity to encourage beginners to embrace Windows PowerShell and has been Ed's student in his blogs as he describes scripting for people starting out. She also loves people and enjoys helping and volunteers as the booking agent for the PowerScripting Podcast and has assisted MVP Jim Christopher in starting the Charlotte PowerShell Users Group.  As Ed speaks at different events Teresa can usually be found with him helping pass out business cards and words of encouragement. In her spare time Teresa is an avid reader and you won’t find her without a book or two in hand.
