Teryn joined ATKG in 2001 to help out on projects while Melanie had her twin boys. What started out as a favor from one CPA friend to another turned into Teryn becoming a partner in 2003, which was likely Melanie’s master plan the whole time. Of course, Teryn’s quite strategic herself, so it was very likely part of her master plan as well!
Teryn graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and then earned her MBA from the University of Manchester (UK). She honed her skills at Big Four firms both nationally and internationally, as well as in industry working for a prior client, but found her dream job when she became her own boss and surrounded herself with great teammates at ATKG. With over 20 years of experience in areas such as real estate, manufacturing, oil & gas, family offices, retail and professional services, Teryn is a great role model and mentor for staff members at ATKG.
Teryn is active in many organizations outside of ATKG. She is a board member and current Finance Chair of the San Antonio Chapter of Entrepreneurs Organization (EO). She is also a past board member of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and served as chair of their Million Dollar Roundtable program. Teryn’s leadership in these organizations comes full circle to ATKG, as Teryn is known for bringing idea after idea after idea back to the company to keep things fresh, to challenge us, and to keep ATKG at the top of its game.
With her involvement as a partner at ATKG and in the community, it’s hard to believe Teryn has time for anything else, but she does! She is an avid traveler and even lived in South Africa before joining ATKG. Her many world travels make for great conversation at firm happy hours! She can’t pick a favorite destination, but says that hiking in New Zealand and cocktails on a great beach top the list! As if that’s not enough, Teryn stays active by participating in marathons and triathlons. Most importantly, however, she loves spending quality time with her two greatest accomplishments, daughters Nicole and Natalie.
