Shalynne Jackson City of Oklahoma City Chief Inclusion & Diversity Officer

Teresa (Tee) Hicks has been drudging the hills of sales and advertising for over 42 years.

The evolution of the buyer seller cycle is the very crux of our economy and few people know that better than Tee. She connects to the genuine spirit of people and understands the value and importance of bringing the authenticity of people caring about people back to the forefront of all businesses in effort to stimulate growth within our communities. This is a PASSION without exception for Tee.
