Teres Lambert, who was raised in northeast Kansas, has called Fort Collins/Windsor "home" for the past 10 years. Teres and her husband, John Krueger, moved to the area from Illinois so they could be closer to her daughter's family, which lives in Fort Collins, and help with Teres' special needs granddaughter. John commutes to his job in Denver. 
Now retired, Teres has lived in five states and Australia. Her professional career included writing about animal agriculture, working for marketing/public relations companies that specialized in animal agriculture and teaching journalism and public relations on the collegiate level. She is also the author of a book, published in 2020, that covers the first 50 years of Gelbvieh, a breed of cattle, in the United States. 
Teres was introduced to service before self as a 4-Her. "I was put on this earth to serve others, and I have the time and energy to do it, so why not do it," she states. To that point, in addition to being a member of Rotary, Teres is on the Board of Directors and President of Front Range Exceptional Equestrians, a Fort Collins-based non-profit that provides adaptive horsemanship classes for at-risk youth, first responders and individuals with special needs. 
In her spare time, Teres enjoys sailing, traveling and hanging with friends and family. She loves to play cards and games, drink red wine and soak up life's special moments.
