Talk about a career change! Teresa White, who is now the Marketing Consultant here at Columbia Home Magazine, moved to Columbia around a year ago. She was in Springfield working in the banking industry and finishing up school. Read on to find out more about what makes Teresa tick.
Why do you love Columbia Home Mag?
I’ve only been in Columbia for about a year, but I love that the magazine has allowed me to get to know the community. Since I was new to the area, it’s been a great way to meet people and learn about the fun things going on in Columbia.
What are you most excited for this year?
I just look forward to summer every year. It’s my favorite part of the year.
What are some of your New Years Resolutions?
Hmm, I have a lot, but how about to take my supplements and focus on my fitness goals.
What’s your favorite activity to do in Columbia on a weekday/weekend?
I love using the Katy trail for bike riding and walking with my boyfriend. I also love all of the nature parks and state parks.
I love Room 38, Quintons, and Buffalo Wild Wings (to watch games and eat wings of course!).
Favorite place to shop?
I really like Maude Vintage downtown.
What movie(s) do you want to see soon?
Definitely the third Twilight-Breaking Dawn. I was so upset I haven’t seen it yet. Oh and also Water for Elephants!
Favorite new technology?
Well, I just got an iPhone for the first time, so now I’m just trying to learn about all the apps.
Favorite piece in you house?
I have a really red ceramic vase from Pier 1 that’s really tall. It also has African grass sticking out of it, making it around 7 ft tall.
Favorite winter/spring/summer clothing items?
Right now, my new high black boots. In the spring/summer, when I’m not at work I like to wear jean shorts and my bathing suit.
What is your favorite way to relax or let off steam?
Going for a long bike ride. taking a bubble bath or having a margarita. Maybe all three!
If you could have one talent/skill that you don’t already have, what would it be and why?
Whistle or wink, because people make fun of me for it. I finally taught myself to snap though!
What music are you in love with right now?
Definitely classic rock, like Lynard Skynard and Peter Frampton.
