In this interview Sr. Therese Tackett discusses the challenges of her entry into religious life, especially coming from her home in Bluefield, West Virginia. She goes on to describe her work as an educator in poverty-stricken schools, as well as her service to other Sisters in the convent. Specifically, she details much of the artwork that has inspired her, as well as her hobby for creating puzzles. Additionally, she recounts how the loss of her leg has not deterred her from being a service-oriented member in community.
