Talent Acquisition Lead

“Keep growing — change can open doors to unimaginable opportunities.”

Teresa Brink’s grandmother taught her to always show her “sisu” — a Finnish concept that translates roughly to grit, resilience, bravery, and perseverance in times of adversity. She channels her determination and strength to push boundaries and help others reach their full potential.

Teresa’s belief that people are always learning from and teaching those around them guides her work building Propeller’s roster of volunteers, activists, athletes, parents and more who also happen to be amazing consultants. Her experience includes working in talent acquisition, career management, and human resources at Portland State University, Oregon Health and Science University, and Reddaway. Teresa holds a bachelor’s degree in human resources and management leadership from Portland State University.
