Teresa is a bivocational minister and family physician, and she serves at New Life Community Church in Lincoln Heights, a Servant Partners related ministry in Los Angeles, California. She received her M.D. in 2010 and is currently living and working in the vibrant community of East Los Angeles. One of her passions is taking care of expectant mothers, delivering their babies and helping them transition into motherhood, something her own motherhood journey has enriched. She enjoys experiencing and creating mixed media art, trying new vegetarian recipes, napping with her babies, and on most days, learning how to stay present and peace-filled as a working mother of two.
