Teressa’s family has deep roots in White County. Her grandparents settled here in the 1920’s and her family called Helen “home” until the late 1950’s. Teressa spent her early years in the Northwest Georgia Mountains, but her childhood summers found her on the banks of the Chattahoochee River, on her grandparents’ farm near downtown Helen. Today she resides on a portion of that family farm with her husband Bill. Helen has been “home” again since 1980. It was always her goal to raise her family in Helen and she says, “I got back as soon as I could.” She has a deep love for the mountains and valleys of Northeast Georgia!
