In January 2018, she became Sisterhood President at Nusach H'ari B'nai Zion congregation. Prior to moving to St. Louis, Teree was the Treasurer of Congregation Beth Israel in Chico, CA, and a Sisterhood board member. Before that, she was involved at Peninsula Temple Beth El in San Mateo and at her children's religious schools. "I never wanted to be a drop-off/pick-up Mom, so I got involved."

Teree works in the Finance Department at Smith Bucklin on the United Soybean Association account. Teree has two sons who are Associates. She began her career with Hadassah as an HLA participant in 2001, and has visited Israel twice with Hadassah.
