Terah Turrentine is a senior family services coordinator at Fatima. She earned a degree in Applied Psychology from Coppin State University says that she chose human services as a career because she always wanted to be of service. “I enjoy being a part of the process of the human experience. Watching people change their lives, even in the smallest measure for the better, is a wonderful thing — and if I can bear witness to it and even play a part in it, that makes what I do worth waking up for.”
Terah has a big responsibility in our Head Start program, supervising family services for more than 550 children. Even with that broad charge, Terah can always be counted on to go the extra mile to help coworkers.
It’s not surprising to hear that Terah ’s favorite children's book is What Do You Do With a Problem, by Kobi Yamada, which speaks to the human experience and teaches children that they can overcome obstacles.
