Driven to improve the spaces around us and to train the next generation of designers, Teresa Edwards Ko started Teresa Ko – Commercial Interiors in June of 2009. Her love for design started at an early age, leading to a Bachelors degree in Interior Design from James Madison University and a Masters of Architecture from Virginia Tech. The blending of these two disciplines plus over 18 years of practice in interior design and architectural firms helps Teresa lead a team of designers to create innovative, purposeful, inspiring spaces. After obtaining her degrees, Teresa spent almost 6 years teaching interior design at Radford University, which generated a passion for teaching young designers. Her firm now employs emerging professionals and teaches them to hone their craft and push their creativity beyond expectations. The team specializes in corporate and higher education spaces but also has award winning designs in retail, small medical and residential design. As a longtime member of ASID, Teresa currently serves as the Director at Large for the Virginia Chapter. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, cooking and outdoor activities with her husband Andy and their pups Dexter and Barkley.
