 Community Building & Engagement 
Terra is an out of the box thinker who challenges the status quo and encourages those around her to approach their work with a commitment to excellence. She easily applies her experience and expertise as an educator to nonprofit programmatic efforts. Her passion for making a difference and community building is matched by strong management skills including relationship management, fundraising, process development, program design and execution. She is an inspirational leader, and I look forward to new opportunities to work with her.

Community Transition Development 
I witnessed Terra take communities in strife over proposed changes for communities and foster productive dialogues with community members and developers, resulting in success. She is truly a consummate professional – driven, innovative, and fearless. She is a leader among her peers and serves as mentor to those she works with, including community advocates, activists and planners.  She has risen to be a top strategist that helps others develop greater inclusion, accountability and proven results in evolving communities.

I have worked with Terra off and on for the last 20+ years. One of the things I admire most is her leadership. She's one of those people that others naturally follow. She has good ideas, firm commitment and a large capacity to inspire. When she leads, everyone else lines up behind her. She's excellent at developing project managers who get things organized and done. She has a strong passion for young people and education. She has dedicated much of her career to helping young people learn, grow and achieve more than they expected they could. She has a wealth of experience and innovative ideas that support organizations in creating amazing education or youth programs.
