Tera has lived in Oregon most of her life, raised in Brookings and raising her own family in the Portland area.  She has 2 incredible kids: Claudia & Nicholas and three equally excellent fids (furry kids) Hank, Jasper and Emmy Lou.

Tera is a nerd at heart and loves to learn new things. She enjoys outdoor activities such as gardening, hiking and rafting and though she stinks at it, she thinks tennis is a blast.
