Theresa Celeste Conn is the only child of a real-estate-agent mother and a (now-retired) Air Force officer father. The family moved often during her childhood, but eventually settled in Albuquerque, NM. Having forsaken acting for cheerleading in high school, Colombino was in her junior year as a communications major at University of San Diego when she went to Florence, Italy — and had an epiphany. Realizing that she really wanted to be an actress, Colombino made a deal with her parents: She would move to L.A. for the summer to pursue her dream, but would return to finish her senior year. Soon after, she landed a part on the syndicated teen show BREAKER HIGH, then auditioned for ATWT in 1998, partly because it would take her to New York and away from industry-obsessed L.A. Stuck in a teen storyline for her first year, Colombino truly blossomed (along with Katie) when her scheming, high-strung character was paired with Paul Leyden's Simon. Colombino was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress in 2001 and for Outstanding Supporting Actress at the Soap Opera Digest Awards that same year.
Colombino stayed in Oakdale till the series ended in September 2010, and then joined OLTL as a new character named Aubrey.
