Tehya graduated from Boston University in 2016 with a BA in Philosophy. During her college years, Teyha worked for political nonprofits, fundraising and building grassroots support for sustainability, consumer protections, and voting rights in both St. Petersburg, Florida, and Boston. In 2019 Teyha joined the Pete Buttigieg presidential campaign as a field organizer in East Las Vegas. She used her background in grassroots mobilization to inspire a diverse community with typically low voter turnout to connect with their community over shared values and participate in the Nevada Caucuses.
In 2020, Teyha went to work as a direct mail Account Executive. She worked with clients across the country and at every level of office. Tehya joined AGENCY in 2023. Here, she uses her background in grassroots coalition building to help our work remain authentic to the diverse candidates and causes we champion across the country.
Tehya lives in St. Petersburg with three black cats: Kylo, Juno, and Oliver. She enjoys going to the beach, traveling to the mountains to hike, and spending time with her family.
Tehya’s Life Hack: “Since 2020, I have been doing yoga consistently. It really helps me connect with myself and stay mindful. Sometimes you just need to take a moment to breathe and stretch!”
