“Terry is extremely creative and knowledgeable about media promotions. She created digital special sections for our publications that provided products we could monetize. And she did everything herself from concept, to creating content and providing video, and wrapped it all up in a graphically pleasing format. Terry's knowledge of graphics software and her ability to learn new platforms is very strong. And her positive, "can-do" attitude is the best!”
Betsy Wilson, Publisher of Montgomery Media and JRC Consultant. Managed Terry at Journal Register Company

“Terry is a vastly talented, dedicated individual, but what sets her apart from others is that she constantly strives to become better. She is not the kind of employee who sticks strictly to her job duties. Instead, she'll pitch in and do whatever it takes to get the project done and done well. She's incredibly proficient in helping develop projects from concept to fruition and would be a tremendous addition to any team. Highly recommended.”
Matt Grisafi, General Manager Bucks Local Media Group, Journal Register Company. Managed Terry at Journal Register Company
