|Terry started TTE Transcripts Worldwide in 1986 as a one–woman secretarial and transcription firm providing services to various audio publishers. Client referrals soon spurred expansion into other areas, such as legal, telecommunications, IT, engineering and finance. With the globalization of business at the turn of the century, Terry recognized a need for translation and foreign language transcription and began offering those services as well.
In 2007, TTE became certified as a women–owned business. Terry is a member of eWomenNetwork and NAWBO. In January 2008, Terry traveled to Ecuador with eWomenNetwork and CARE to help women in that region get started in business.
On a personal note, Terry is married with two daughters, two dogs and three cats. She loves horseback riding and music.
