At Pineville High she was the sponsor for EF Tours and led students on twelve trips to a variety of countries in Europe. Each trip included Paris where Terri's spoken French language was admired.
She retired from Rapides Parish School System in 2012. The day of her retirement was the only day she cried during the entire course of her cancer treatment. She also worked as a part time Sales Associate at Pier One Imports, Alexandria.

She was an active member of the Junior League of Alexandria for many years, serving in various leadership positions.
