“Coming to Project HEAL is especially exciting for me, because it is the first time I’m working with an organization that has personally touched me. Having recovered from an eating disorder when I was in my 20’s, I can really relate to those we are helping.”
Terry has vast experience in events, having worked on galas raising more than $1M, and starting a national fundraising Walk program. She also has helped many individuals make gifts that were transformative, not only for the organization, bur for the donor as well. In addition, she has launched a very successful planned giving program.

During her free time, Terry likes to swim, tease her cat, and play with her two grandchildren. Terry can frequently be found enjoying her favorite flavor of ice cream – peanut butter and chocolate!
