Start date: January 2014
Teddie is Clinical Associate Professor in the School of Nursing at the University of Minnesota. She is the Coordinator of the Doctor of Nursing Practice in Health Innovation and Leadership and the Director of Inclusivity and Diversity. Recently she co-authored a book with Riane Eisler called Transforming Interprofessional Partnerships: A New Framework for Nursing and Partnership-Based Health Care. A passion for healing, traditional wisdom, and her own lifelong love of nature led Teddie to have a very early recognition of shifts in natural rhythms related to climate change. She was instrumental in forming “The Earthwise Group” at Mayflower United Church of Christ and was able to promote an Earthwise Resolution and the Resolution for Carbon Neutral Church Buildings, which passed at both the state and national levels. The Earthwise ministry also spearheaded a successful capital funds campaign, so the church was able to recently install 204 solar panels on the roof of Mayflower.
