Theresa started training in 2003. She was one of the original student at the Okinawan Karate Institute. She was 3 years old when she stepped on the mat to practice the art of Shorin-Ryu karate.

Theresa currently has grading in three different associations. Theresa has traveled extensively training with several world renowned master instructors. She also has numerous traditional Okinawan tournament championships in Fighting as well as Forms and in Weapons. 

Theresa is currently pursuing her masters in clinical mental health at Johnson & Wales University. Theresa sets the positive examples for the younger students at the dojo by maintaining a 4.0 GPA and working in the Westerly School system as a Para Professional. Theresa is responsible for the activities of the current demonstration team.

Theresa has earned her 3rd degree black belt in karate and her 2nd degree black belt in kobudo. She has travelled and trained in Okinawa Japan a total of 3 times.
