She spent nearly 20 years as a research analyst, supervisor and analytical program manager with the federal government. Each of these roles called on her extensive skills in research, analysis, writing, editing and interpersonal communication. In May 2002, Terry started her own consulting company that provides research and writing services. As the Senior Editor for Moms in Print, she offered reviews and detailed comments on EVERY manuscript submitted for consideration. In 2003 she launched the Reading Tub(r). What started as a hobby project became a full-fledged, accredited 501c3 in less than a year! She partners with other non-profits to provide at-risk readers with the tools they need to become successful students and citizens.
We look forward to your visit. Thank you!
