Teresa Brazen

  • Design Education Strategist

As a Design Education Strategist for Cooper, Teresa Brazen pulls from her experience across many disciplines (film, design, journalism) to inspire curriculum, teach, and build community. Her passion is teaching others how to cultivate healthy, inspired cultures within projects, teams and organizations—no matter what their role. Through her work as a trainer, facilitator, and program manager, she's had the unique privilege of collaborating with, nurturing, and empowering teams from a broad range of industries: global financial institutions, Silicon Valley startups, and everything in-between. Drawing from those experiences and much more, she teaches tools and methods that empower individuals and teams to not only make the best work of their lives, but love the process of creating together

If she could give a superpower it would be the ability to seed empathy in anyone.
Her hometown is Caracas, Venezuela.
Favorite food: Thai or a whole pint of Cookies & Cream ice cream in one sitting. Or both.
Favorite tool? An extra-fine ball point pilot pen.
