Theresa was born in Hollywood, CA and grew up in the San Fernando Valley. She attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, and received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Regis University in Denver, CO.

“I took a demo ride with my brother at Oxnard Airport in 1985 and I was hooked. It was love at first flight.” Theresa said.

She started lessons in the 99’s ground school for Future Women Pilots in 1986 at Van Nuys Airport. She received her first Student Pilot’s certificate in 1986 and started and stopped flying as her small advertising agency grew, balancing the challenge of
flying lessons with managing a growing business in Southern California. Her company, Bower & Associates, became a
sponsor when Theresa participated in the 1989 Valley Air
Derby. It was her first and only air race (until now).

Theresa immersed herself in flying whenever possible, and took instrument ground school before her business expanded again. Having moved to Northern California in 1992, she resumed flying at Lampson Field near Napa. She expanded her full service advertising agency to include aerial photography which broadened her service area from California to Hawaii, serving
a growing clientele list.

In 2003 she resumed flying at Henderson Executive Airport
when she moved to southern Nevada. She has logged a total of 128 hours as a student pilot. She has been working on her pilot’s certificate on-and-off for over 21 years.

Her primary goal in participating in this air race is to be around successful women pilots like Kathleen and Mardell, who have
an awesome flying history, which she knows will inspire her to FINALLY finish getting her pilots license.

Theresa’s 25 years of advertising and marketing experience will serve the team well as crew and media liaison, where she will handle the team’s media relations.
