Terry Pierre prides herself in being the steer-head and foundation to several successful businesses. Her faith, quick wit and unwavering determination to succeed has propelled her to levels beyond her imagination.

Pierre graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, with a bachelors degree in Corporate Communications and a minor in Business Foundations. Directly after graduation, Pierre was recruited to help boost several Fortune 500 companies. Now, she is expanding her very own empire, all the while, developing her expertise in the areas of strategic planning, business development, marketing, management and public affairs.
