Venturing into trips with other women who have a love of fashion has always been a dream! Last year we headed to Paris where I presented my thoughts on the Lingerie Trends for 2022! It was a trip filled with new beginnings., great food, adventure and new friends. This year we were in New York at Christmas presenting another Lingerie Trend Report for 2023. Guess where we will be going next? Wherever it is, I know you will want to be with us. Stay tuned!!! If you want to experience a fun, informative program for your event, Terri hosts "bring an item to the presentation - you know, the one you don't know what to do with. It might be a belt, jacket, scarf or foundations that you are just not too sure about. You will be amazed at the style and new ideas that Terri will come up with for you.
Terri resides in Florida, and has two daughters, four granddaughters, one great granddaughter who affectionately refers to her as “Grandma New York" and a new great grandson." She hopes that her successful career as a model, trainer, educator, and consultant will motivate and inspire you to DREAM ON AND DREAM BIG!!!
