Theresa returned from the Iraq War with increasingly painful health issues. Her search for an assistance dog started her on the path to her new venture. “I created Puppy Mama because I realized there is a vast community of women who (like me) love their dogs with a passion and want to take them wherever they go. We’re building a tribe of like-minded women and we are laser-focused on their needs and their lifestyle.”
*** Theresa’s journey ***
Theresa received a B.A. in Economics from Wellesley College in 2006, where she was a collegiate soccer player for two seasons. She also studied military science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology as an ROTC scholarship recipient.
During her 14-month Iraq deployment in 2008, where she served as an Army Captain in a Field Artillery Brigade, Theresa led a large team to defend thousands of soldiers and contractors residing on Forward Operating Base (FOB) Delta near the Iranian border. She was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for her service.
In 2016, she attended the Stanford Graduate School of Business Ignite program before founding Puppy Mama, Inc.
