Never burn a bridge or look down on a person because that one person may be the person you are looking up to someday.

To say that Teresa Landrum-Caswell is ambitious would be an understatement. Landrum has truly mastered the art of balance as she maintains several roles throughout her life; she is a wife, mother of six, Administrative Coordinator for the Physician Assistant Studies Program at the University of Tennessee, adjunct business faculty member, and CEO of her own consulting business – and to top things off, recently published her first book, Thrive Where You Are: While Striving to Get Where You Want to Go.

Landrum’s academic career began at Robert Morris University – Illinois, as she attended the Springfield campus earning her bachelor degree in business administration. She recalls Robert Morris being “very instrumental in helping me reach my career goals. The policies in place while in school prepared me for the workplace. Today, even in the college I teach, I see that professionalism is missing.”

She has since completed her MBA at University of Phoenix and is currently applying for doctoral programs at Tennessee State University and University of Memphis. ​

An educator at heart, Landrum works hard to ensure that her students enter the workforce representing the school professionally. She encourages students to learn as much as they can, become cross-trained in multiple disciplines so that they may be able to compete in the corporate world.  She reminds all of us to, “treat people the way you want to be treated. Never burn a bridge or look down on a person because that one person may be the person you are looking up to [someday].”

In her book, Thrive Where You Are, Landrum inspires women to expand and evolve within their careers and relationships, to challenge themselves each and every day, and to walk in life with purpose.
