Teresa Jenkins. Teresa, as DigiTech Coordinator, is passionate about working to close the digital divide experienced by residents of Richmond that sometimes don’t have access or resources to high speed, low-cost broadband (Internet); digital and technological resources; and, the opportunity to command these digital and technological resources .
