Teresa Marie Rosati-Royer

Teresa Rosati-Royer grew up in a big Italian family that loved to get together and dance the polka while grandpa played the accordion. Of course there was always lots of good food and laughter, which helped to establish her cooking and hosting skills.
Like her grandfather, Teresa is a gifted musician having studied piano and voice for over 10 years and sometimes plays for guests upon request.

As a young adult, Teresa attended cosmetology school and became a hair stylist and makeup artist. After running a full service spa & salon for 15 years and raising a family, she decided to explore religion and became a Unity minister. Yes, she has even performed the marriages of a few of Tuscali’s visiting guests!

After meeting Bruce, Teresa went back to school where she earned a degree in Interior Architecture from UCLA Extension. She and Bruce visited many homes and even took a trip to Italy to research and format the design concept that is now Tuscali Mountain Inn.

Teresa enjoys cooking, gardening, and hosting guests from all over the world. Teresa says, “I have the best job in the world, because I love what I do.”
