Executive Director, Land Trust of Santa Cruz County
As a child, Terry enjoyed family camping trips to Big Basin and Henry Cowell’s State Parks. These experiences developed in her a deep love of the natural lands of Santa Cruz County. After becoming a CPA, Terry spent most of her business career in corporate finance. Prior to her executive finance roles in technology start-ups, Terry was in charge of taxation, treasury and SEC reporting for Plantronics. She became Executive Director of the Land Trust in 2005. Since that time the Land Trust has protected 10,442 acres of high conservation value land in Santa Cruz County and raised $38 million toward land protection.
