Teresa White brings over 20 years of international relief and development experience to the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women; a quarter of those years were spent with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as part of their Financial Services for the Poor initiative. She has enjoyed traveling to developing countries, seeing, experiencing and learning from the vast cultures that make up our world today. Having spent time in 14 countries in all corners of the globe, including Afghanistan, Kenya, and Ecuador, she hopes to grow that number in the upcoming years.
Teresa grew up on beautiful Whidbey Island in the state of Washington; however, she lived most of her life in and around the Seattle area. She moved to Oklahoma City in recent years to be closer to her mother and was excited to find an international non-profit where she can add value in her role as Executive Assistant to Dr. Terry Neese.
