Teresa O'Quinn

Last April we found ourselves without a “front office” person to greet visitors, answer the phone and to keep our office, programs and database running smoothly. And that’s just a few of the things we needed help with!

Enter Fernside volunteer Teresa O’ Quinn. Teresa is a Fernside facilitator working with 4th, 5th and 6th graders on our West Side group night. When we reached out to her to ask if she might be willing to do more, she said yes! She graciously agreed to help us out two days a week until we could hire a new Administrative Assistant. At first we gave Teresa the “easy” things to do until we learned she’d been holding out on us. We discovered she had experience with databases and a whole lot more, including her former role as CFO at a local bank!

Teresa worked diligently through our hiring process, keeping things organized and even staying on to train our new Administrative Assistant.

We don’t know what we would have done without her amazing support throughout the spring and summer. Thank you Teresa!
