ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Theresa McDonough, is a mom, wife, and a successful entrepreneur with experience in both the tech and real estate industries, has become a leading voice in the Right to Repair movement. Born and raised in Vermont, Ms. McDonough obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Science and Health Information Technology before embarking on a career as a serial entrepreneur.
In 2013, while working with her husband on their audio recording business, Ms.McDonough was approached by a colleague to help start a cell phone and computer repair shop. This experience led her to open her own store in Middlebury Vermont. The shop has since become a popular destination for customers seeking hardware and software repairs from across the state.
Ms.McDonough’s involvement in the right-to-repair movement began in 2018 when Vermont Public Interest Research Group (VPIRG), a nonprofit, reached out to her to ask for her support in Montpelier. She testified at the state house and was interviewed by Vermont Public Radio about the importance of Right-to-Repair.
Her testimony caught the attention of the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which invited her to testify at their “Nixing the Fix” workshop in Washington, DC in July 2019. Following her testimony, CBS Sunday Morning interviewed her, and an episode aired on October 11, 2020, discussing the Right to Repair movement and Apple’s independent repair program. Ms. McDonough’s expertise and knowledge played a significant role in Apple’s decision to release the program.
With her passion for tech and desire to help others troubleshoot their devices, Ms. McDonough has taken on the role of sharing her knowledge and experience on her blog. Through her business, Tech Medic, and her involvement in the right-to-repair movement, she has become a respected voice in the tech community.
