Tera has lived in Oregon most of her life, raised in Brookings and raising her own family in the Portland area.  Her professional background is primarily in long-term care, though most recently she worked as an investigator for Adult Protective Services. 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 hiking and rafting and though she stinks at it, she thinks tennis is a blast.  She is thrilled to have joined the Connections family, where she will be able to continue to be of service to her community.
