Theresa began her career in the Care Industry out of a labor of love, when one of her closest friends became ill and was in need of an advocate for her wellbeing, her finances and eventually her estate. As a result, Theresa started Just Like Family, Inc. in 2006.
Using her business mind and experience, Theresa advocates for people when they can no longer advocate for themselves. Theresa is a certified Fiduciary, Trustee and Conservator – but it goes far beyond that. She has been named the “Daughter for Hire” by many of her clients. Theresa’s primary mission is to protect her clients and everything they have worked so hard to achieve, and she strongly promotes that her clients maintain their integrity and dignity at all times. She makes sure they are enjoying their lives to the fullest, with the least amount of stress and worry. Theresa insists her clients live their lives on their terms! She acts as their eyes, ears and voice when necessary. Some of her clients like to refer to her as their Personal Assistant, whether it’s just being there for daily money management and bill paying or taking care of their daily lives and estate.
Prior to being in Care Management Theresa enjoyed a successful Sales Career in the Printing Industry and also founded a company – Cupcake Cuties in 2009.
Theresa is a proud UCLA Graduate and lives in Pasadena with her Husband David and their 2 children. She enjoys golf, hiking, cooking and spending time with friends and family.
