At-Large Director 2016-2019
In 2005, Terri joined the Junior League of Lafayette and later transferred to The Junior League of Austin. During this time she has served as Strategic Planning Chair, Provisional Team Leader, Communications Vice President, Membership Vice President and 80th Anniversary. Terri first became interested in “doing good” at an early age in her hometown of Lafayette, LA. One of her first volunteer experiences was volunteering at the Lafayette Parish Public Library in elementary school and serving cookies at the Alpha Kappa Alpha Ivy Reading Academy. Since then she has been a sought after expert for non-profits looking to build sustainable structures for volunteer management. She credits her membership in Junior Leagues for helping to strengthen her as a professional and furthering her community servant beliefs. Terri currently serves as the Vice President of Government Relations for the American Heart Association-SouthWest Affiliate where she is responsible for managing thought-leadership, industry trends and fighting heart disease and stroke through public policy. Terri joined the Association of Junior Leagues International Board in 2016 and is the only under 40 board member.
