She has held consultative, technical and business development roles for several organizations as well as management roles in IT, higher education, software/mobile app development, and professional services firms. Teri also currently holds 35+ certifications from a variety of organizations including IEEE and Apple.

In addition, Teri taught Apple IT & Productivity courses (training.apple.com) at Future Media Concepts shortly before the Chicago office closed in 2020.
As a 15+ year member of the Audio Engineering Society, she has co-developed and upgraded websites for both the organization's international education committee and regional Chicago Section, educated seasoned Chicago Section members on the potential of social media, and served on both domestic & international committees from 2007-2010 (125th, 126th, 127th Conventions).

During undergraduate studies, Teri held part-time positions with a Wisconsin regional music store and radio station.
Since 2011, Teri's career has mainly focused on working alongside Apple to engineer Mac and iOS deployments for Fortune 500/enterprise, small business, financial, government, healthcare, and education customers where she was part of the team to help build Apple's supply chain under Tim Cook. She's worked on strategic projects for Apple in healthcare and education, including pre-sales engineering for Chicago Public Schools / Apple's 'Everyone Can Code' initiative with Jamf, an industry leader in Apple device management. Post-MBA, completed a short term contract as a Solution Architect at United Airlines, where she was an IT consultant for a mobile device environment co-supported by Apple & IBM.

I left the AES in 2020 because I wasn't getting much of anything out of my membership while doing a lot of work for sections/committees over the years, plus I transitioned into IT after a decade+ of underemployment. I've been with the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) for 2+ years. I was asked to serve on the DEI Committee.
