Founder & CEO

Teresa Bare-Inman

Teresa is the owner and founder of ReTwist-T. Born and raised in the Midwest, and an avid learner, Teresa continues active careers as a Physical Therapist Assistant, Health & Wellness Coach, and Cosmetologist.

Today, along with her growing team of local artists, artisans and curators, Teresa continues to explore the creative process while promoting health and well-being.
