MaryTheresa “Terri” Ferris, RPR (Roanoke, Virginia)
I have been a freelance reporter for almost 40 years, most of that time in Roanoke, Virginia, and the surrounding area. I graduated from Youngstown State University’s court/conference reporting program with an associate degree. I then started my reporting career in Akron, Ohio before marrying my husband Ray and moving to Roanoke.
I have loved being a freelance reporter, as it has enabled me to work and raise my family with the freedom of setting my own schedule.
I look forward to serving on the VCRA board and getting involved in helping promote and encourage others to join this very rewarding profession.
In my spare time I like to read and travel. I especially enjoy entertaining and spending time with my family and friends.
