Teresa Victoria (Bayo now Gossett) has always had an interest in acting and in being entertaining. It wasn’t until her sophomore year of high school that she realized that it was her calling. That is when she began planning her career as an actress. In 2010, she graduated Lagrange Academy and set off for the Savannah College of Art and Design. There, she graduated with a B.F.A. in performing arts as well as a minor in film. Teresa believed that to be a great actress, she must study all aspects of both theater and film. She joined 3rd Act Productions in her junior year, a student run organization that produced, directed, cast, designed and performed all of their own shows. It is also there where her interest in Stage Management was piqued. The production that she stage managed during her college which she is most proud was Eurydice.
After graduating in 2014, Teresa joined the Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET) family as the Leitalift intern in 2014 and was able to help with the productions of their 2014-2015 season. There, she learned to strengthen her skills as a stage manager and realized another passion for props design. It was after her internship was over that she was asked to prop master some of the T.Y.A (Theatre for Young Audiences) shows.
After her internship, Teresa joined the staff for the Center for Puppetry arts in 2015 for the grand opening for the museum department. There she learned the amazing art of puppetry. She was there for about a year and a half before using the skills she learned to become a Simulation Specialist for the University of West Georgia.
However, Teresa has never lost her love of being on stage or in front of the camera. She has found a new passion for voice over. She can be found on Voice123 as well as Bodalgo. She is kept in line by her dog, Gomez, and is supported by her wonderful husband, David.
