Born and raised in Oregon, Teresa moved here in 1995. She is married to Rick and has 2 children, Richie age 12 and Melanie age 9. I first became familiar with Northwoods Airlifeline in 2002 when I was a passenger on a flight to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester for which my Mother-In-Law Barbara Louys was the patient. The pilot was Dennis Whitehead, also with Dennis was Gerry Elliott another member of Northwoods Airlifeline. During the flight I had the opportunity to speak with both and found out what a truly terrific group Northwoods Airlifeline was and what a truly wonderful service they provided. They also said that they were in the process of trying to raise enough money to purchase a plane.
I asked what I could do to help.. I’ve been with them ever since. Belonging to Northwoods Airlifeline has been a truly rewarding experience for me. It has allowed me to meet many wonderful people as well as give something back to the community.
