As a mom of teens, Terri has lived through many stages of parenting and loves sharing relevant products for moms and dads. She's also an avid travel and theme park writer, so she's in the know when it comes to the best carry-on bag or the perfect personal fan for hot days at Disney. Health and fitness are among her passions, and she's always on the lookout for the perfect water bottle or home workout gear. And, whether she's trying the newest rosé or snacking her way through the best potato chip flavors, she loves sharing everything she learns about food and cooking products.

Based in a small Florida beach town, Terri loves crafting a good story, traveling with her family and watching "Grey's Anatomy" with a glass of Cabernet and her two dogs. When she's not reading or riding her Peloton, she can be found seeking out the best Indian food, poutine and theme park treats she can get her hands on. (Any Mickey-shaped food is usually a favorite).

Favorite Purchase:

Some of the best purchases Terri has recently made include her Hidrate Spark water bottle — which keeps her on task with water-drinking throughout busy days of writing — and a crossbody belt bag that she currently uses to keep her life organized while remaining hands-free.
