About Me

Theresa’s job is telling people where to go – literally. As the founder and publisher of The Local Tourist, she’s made a living out of finding and recommending the best places to go and things to do. After moving to Chicago in 2001 she turned her degree in Journalism and her passion for exploring her new home into a neighborhood-oriented website that would help people get the most out of the Windy City. This earned her a spot on the NBC Street Team and as one of the initial bloggers on the Chicago Tribune’s ChicagoNow network. She’s also won an Emmy for Outstanding Achievement for Alternate Media/New Media Interactivity.
