Teresa Waller, MA, PHR

Teresa Waller began her career in Human Resources in the start-up environment of Sprint PCS, filling over 600 positions in nine states in a year, armed with nothing but a degree in psychology and dedication.  She went on to work for such companies as RSM McGladrey, Sony Online Entertainment, and SAIC, earning a Master’s in Organizational Management along the way.  After 15 years of HR generalist and management experience, with the last nine at SAIC as a manager, Teresa most enjoys partnering with leadership to achieve excellence and drive people initiatives.  Earlier this year, she completed a certificate program in Employee Relations through eCornell University.  But when Teresa says she likes ‘working with people and helping others,’ she’s really not kidding.
