Teresa McKee, Host

Teresa McKee, CEO of Work2Live, is a transformation and leadership coach, certified mindfulness meditation facilitator, and EFT practitioner. Combining her training and education, including a B.S. in Business Administration and an M.S. in Psychology specializing in Leadership Coaching Psychology, with her experience of over 35 years as a business consultant, Teresa integrates behavioral science with results-oriented processes to help executives and teams achieve their goals. She facilitates workshops, webinars and online trainings and is a frequent motivational speaker for various live and online events.


After years of observing people’s angst in individual coaching sessions and in group trainings, she realized that the one practice that could change everyone’s state of being was mindfulness. What began as monthly recordings for hospital-based home visiting teams to listen to while driving between client sessions turned into A Mindful Moment podcast, now produced in both English and Spanish. Her goal is to help people learn how to live a more enriching life with less stress and more contentment. She has also recently introduced online mindfulness classes to coaching professionals in the United States and Canada and offers online mindfulness courses through Work2Live.

Teresa is a ​member of the Mindfulness Society Global Institute, and is also an avid volunteer in the Los Angeles area, believing in community strength and in giving back. She learned her broadcasting skills volunteering for a public affairs radio program, Sojourner Truth, from 2010 to 2013. She has served as Secretary/Treasurer on the Board of Directors of the My Stuff Bags Foundation since 2014 and was a member of the finance committee for Maternal Mental Health NOW from 2016-2022. 


Her new book, Dynamic Response Ability, will be released by Balboa Press in 2022.
