Terri believes leaders turn moments into movements, and if community service were a gene, she inherited it from generations before her who had an unrelenting need to give to others.
Throughout her accomplished career, Terri has turned public and community service into a professional art form that has positively impacted millions of lives.
Terri has found a home with the American Heart Association, realizing her dream of creating significant, community-shifting outcomes. She counts some of the most significant pieces of legislation passed as her biggest accomplishments, including The Louisiana Smoke-Free Air Act, one of the biggest defining moments in her career at the age of 28.
Terri serves on several boards including the Austin Area Urban League, the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Engagement and The Association of Junior Leagues International among others. She was named one of the five most influential women in Central Texas by the Austin Business Journal in 2012. In 2014, Terri was the winner of the Austin Under 40 award in the Government and Public Affairs category.
The Girl Scouts of Central Texas named her to their 2017 Women of Distinction Class and the Greater Austin Black Chamber of Commerce named her Executive of the Year in 2014. Today, in addition to her responsibilities at AHA, Terri is focused on paying it forward – encouraging and building up others who want to do something big through her blog, www.movementmakertribe.com.
