She graduated from FSU with honors, a B.S. in Interior Design, earned several athletic awards and then played professional basketball in Europe. After playing pro ball she moved to New York City where she would combine her athleticism and natural artistic ability to pursue the craft of acting and storytelling. 
Terri lives with her husband Brian and two cats, (Pooter-Poot and Bang Bang) in Upstate, NewYork where they both run a design/build and landsaping buisiness-Hearts Bend Landscaping. Terri has had the pleasure of playing Joseph in "Jesus Christ Superstar" (Rhinebeck), Olive in the female version of "The Odd Couple" (New Paltz), and in her hometown of Woodstock, she has been seen as Mona in "The Secret Lives of David Ives’s", Rosalind in "As You like It", Vivian in "Lucy", and Jill in "With & Without". She has played Helena in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Sergeant O'Hara in "Arsenic and Old Lace", and Marianne in "The Miser". In Rhinebeck, she was the gal in "The Full Monty" who dunked the rolling roll of toilet paper in the man's bathroom stall. 
In NYC, Terri is the tallest actress to ever play Molly in "Line" at the 13th Street Theater Rep and brought out her FSU high tops to play Meredith in "Five Women Wearing the Same Dress" at the 78th Street Theatre Lab. Terri produced and performed in Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" to raise money for a local women’s shelter, and was a co-organizer for the Women's March in Woodstock which was held in solidarity with the same-day Women’s March on Washington. She has written two solo shows, ”Going Public," and "A Kind Shot." 

"A Kind Shot" has had two Off-Broadway runs and is currently being presented at colleges and universities for Athletic, Theatre, Diversity and Title IX programming.
