Teri has been singing since she was two. Having tried several instruments she settled on guitar at the age of 12 and immediately began performing in talent shows , on a local television show, and when old enough, in lounges and restaurants. Her focus turned to theater in college where she earned a BFA in Drama at UNC-Greensboro. But after a stint in professional theater in Atlanta, GA she returned to her first love of music, playing in establishments from Florida to New England and into the mid-west.
Eventually she moved to Los Angeles where, after returning from a two month music engagement in Japan, she met Jack Justis, her 1st life partner. With his encouragement she mastered the banjo and returned to the keyboard as well. Together they performed throughout the Los Angeles area, including such well known hot spots as The Smokehouse and Chadney's across from Burbank Studios. They moved to the San Diego area in'89 performing in local clubs and on the harbor cruises.
From there they moved to the west coast of Florida north of Tampa and continued to tour in local clubs and casinos till Jack's passing in 2005.
Teri is well known in the Spring Hill area and has performed in many local places and events, among them are : Bare Bones,
The Tiki Bar,
