Teri Jobe joined the staff at Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site (NHS) on January 23, 2017, as an Interpretive Park Guide. Teri brings a growing passion for history and an expectation to further develop her skills as an effective employee of the National Park Service.
Teri was born in Coudersport, Pennsylvania (PA), a small town in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains. She graduated with a Master’s Degree in Park and Resource Management from Slippery Rock University in December 2011. While attending Slippery Rock, Teri met and later married her husband, Tim Jobe.
Teri spent two summers working with the US Army Corps of Engineers at Shenango River Lake in northwestern PA. That experience enabled her to apply for a summer seasonal position with the National Park Service at Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site and Johnstown Flood National Memorial. It was during her time at both of these parks that Teri was exposed to interpreting cultural history to visitors for the first time.
For the next five summers, Teri worked as a seasonal Interpretive Park Guide at Boston National Historic Park in Massachusetts, honing her interpretive and communication skills. In December, she was selected as permanent Interpretive Park Guide at Sand Creek Massacre NHS and now begins a new chapter in both her career and life. Join us in welcoming Teri as she settles into her newly adopted community of Lamar, Colorado.
