Terri counts some of the most significant pieces of legislation passed as  her biggest accomplishments, including The Louisiana Smoke-Free Air Act, one of the biggest defining moments in her career at the age of 28. Terri serves on several boards including the Austin Area Urban League, the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Engagement and The Association of Junior Leagues International among others.
