Ted Teague was born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the youngest of the three children of an entrepreneur mother and a chemist father. He attended the public schools there, and earned his undergraduate degree in political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Always a person with a wide range of interests, Ted helped to get his family’s successful retail business off the ground and went on to start a small publishing company before returning to school at Wake Forest University, where he completed the JD/MBA program in 2002. After professional school, he served as a law clerk to a federal judge in Greensboro and then went into private practice in Winston-Salem, where his practice included corporate transactions, business litigation, health law, and commercial real estate. Ted currently serves as in-house counsel with Novant Health, a large nonprofit healthcare system, where he provides strategic and legal advice to senior executives on all aspects of the organization’s operations, and finds an outlet for his passion to make quality, affordable healthcare available to everyone. Ted volunteers his time as a leader and grassroots volunteer in a variety of civic and political causes, and is a member of his local Quaker Meeting. Participation in the 2008 Marshall Memorial Fellowship program was a life-changing experience for Ted, and he remains actively committed to fostering international understanding. Ted makes his home in Winston-Salem with his wife and two daughters, ages six and one.
