Therese Joslin

Therese co-founded Supporting Strategies | 128, one of the charter franchisees in the network, with Lori Coleman. Earlier in her career Therese was a partner in Resilien INC., an award-winning $400 million global electronics business. She played a critical role in the development of business and sales strategies to achieve rapid international growth. With the help of her team, Therese expanded business operations throughout America, Europe, the Middle East, and the APAC region, becoming one of the largest independent distributor organizations. Prior to launching her Supporting Strategies locations, Therese devoted significant time into responsible wetland development and preservation while raising her children. She jumped at the opportunity to join Supporting Strategies realizing the great benefits of a home-based business on her work/life balance. Therese holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Marketing from Salem University with a concentration on International Business. Outside of work, Therese spends time volunteering with various community resources, from supporting her children’s schools to Meals on Wheels America and most recently helping a nonprofit by cooking for the homeless in greater LA.
