Teri is a licensed marital and family therapist. A former bona fide rocket scientist, Teri moved from helping solve systemic problems in engineering to helping couples, families, and individuals seek solutions to whatever is blocking them from living in fullness and connection with God, themselves, and others. Teri received her bachelor's in chemistry from Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Ala., her MBA from Webster University in St. Louis, and her master's degree in marriage and family therapy from Trevecca. When away from the office, Teri enjoys spending time with her husband and children, reading, writing, science fiction, yoga, and naming the squirrels on campus.
