SURVIVOR | SERIAL-PRENEUR | BUISNESS MENTOR
TERRE TRANSFORMS LEADERS.
Transformational Speaker. Master Teacher. Business Mentor. Best-Selling Author.
Awarded an Honorary Doctorate Degree from Indiana Tech University in 2014 for her more than 20 years of service as an entrepreneur, K-12 educator, author, business mentor, and leadership coach, Terré stands proudly with others who've received this lifetime honor.
The early years of her life would never lead one to imagine that one day she'd be called "Doctor", be a graduate of Northwestern University, live, work, and travel abroad, speak on stages in front thousands, or inspire women, business leaders, and corporate teams to improve their mindsets, overcome self-imposed limitations, and achieve unfathomable success, but she has done all of these things and so much more. Her life is a mosaic of grit, courage, and pure determination.
Her story is as unique as her DNA, born the oldest child of teen parents, who both battled drug addiction, the early years of her life were turbulent. A byproduct of welfare, public school education, and the projects, she was a child riddled with low self-confidence, doubt, and fear of being "found out".
When she shares her story of overcoming a challenged childhood, divorce, bankruptcy, and a major illness that nearly claimed her life in 2017, her audiences are drawn to her story and inspired by her resilience.
Her successes in life and her story are not parallel. They are as opposite as two left shoes and with her story, she inspires change in sales teams, corporate leaders, and educators.
Terré believes that it isn't our fault what happens to us in life, but it is our responsibility to change the narrative.
Today, she speaks and inspires audiences on stages as a problem solver for corporations and educational institutions, helping solve the problem of instilling confidence into leaders who feel like imposters, empowering C-Suite women to lead more boldly, inspiring educators to fervently teach students who sometimes seem unteachable and giving women tools to go from employee to entrepreneur.
