Therese Vega Stromberg, Grad '85

Vega-StrombergSince graduating from Marquette’s master’s program in nursing, Therese Vega Stromberg has worked as an oncology clinical nurse specialist for Covenant Healthcare’s Center for Cancer Care.

Inspired by faculty mentors during her graduate studies, Teri looks beyond her own expertise to see health and illness from the patient’s perspective.

Throughout her nursing career, Teri has been a leader in promoting the specialty of cancer nursing across Milwaukee and Wisconsin. She says she is “continually driven to ensure the quality of life of patients and families with cancer and those near the end of life.”

In addition to her current position, Teri serves in an advance practice role for the palliative care consultation service at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center. She is currently expanding her knowledge and skills into the field of palliative care for many chronic illnesses.

She has recently served as a preceptor for Marquette graduate nursing students, believing that sharing expertise, as well as mentoring and coaching future nurses, is the responsibility of every advance practice nurse.

Teri has contributed her time, energy and expertise to many professional and community projects and publications related to the care of patients and families with cancer.

She has also shared her passion and skills as a volunteer for the American Cancer Society for more than 25 years. She currently serves on its national assembly, Midwest division board of directors and Wisconsin state advisory group.
