Jake George | Marketing Specialist

Tere’s career in Admissions and Consultant Relations began in 1991. Having held leadership positions in therapeutic wilderness programs, boarding schools, and residential facilities throughout the past twenty-five years, Tere has developed a deep understanding of the practical and emotional challenges parents face as they navigate the admissions process for a struggling child.

Highly regarded by parents and professionals for her relational approach, Tere strives to understand the unique needs of each client family and create a personalized admissions experience based upon open communication, integrity, and trust. Tere has a unique ability to navigate obstacles and attend to details while gently guiding her client families with compassion, insight, and care. Tere’s commitment to utilizing the strengths of a team while advocating for her families is evidenced in the positive relationships she has cultivated throughout her career. She works diligently with consultants and clinical professionals to ensure each family is equipped with the knowledge and information they need to begin the wilderness therapy journey. Tere is humbled by her role in this important first step as it sets the foundation for future success and family healing.

Tere shares, “I have immense satisfaction knowing that I am representing a program so committed to emotional strength, mental wellness, physical safety, and family programming. These components deeply align with my personal values, making Open Sky the perfect fit for me.”
