During his more than two decades of retail grocery experience, Terry gained expertise in service leadership, personnel management, relationship building, and community engagement. In addition to his experience in both the conventional and natural space, he completed his degree in Psychology (with a focus in social and industrial disciplines) from Western Washington University.
Terry believes that healthy food should not be the alternative, but the standard. Building healthy and sustainable food systems into the mainstream is a necessity for the well-being and prosperity of people and planet.
Terry enjoys spending his free time in the beautiful wilderness of the northwest, cheering like a hooligan for the Seattle Sounders, listening to and playing music, but most of all, hanging with his pups.
