Meet Terri…

Terri Collins

Born in the great state of Texas, Terri enjoyed a childhood of traveling that sparked her love of adventure.  Terri’s parents always believed in huge family summer vacations.  She can fondly remember the many trips to Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti.  These were cherished moments that she continues to procure today.  Terri decided to become an elementary school teacher while she was attending Florida State University. She completed her BS and MAT at Jacksonville University.   Not too long after this decision, she met her future husband, Michael.  Michael was beginning his career in law enforcement, so their life began.  As their family grew, her travels focused on going to Disney World and other theme parks.  The love of of adventure was still there!

In her almost 33 years of marriage and 27 years of teaching, Terri has focused her travels in the United States.  She has been from California to Maine and all stops in between.  She and Michael’s have recently fallen in love with West Yellowstone, Montana.  They seem to find themselves going back there year after year.
