When I was 18, I almost lost my life. I was in a horrific car accident that involved 9 people, and only 2 survived. I had 5 of my front teeth knocked out, my forehead was split wide open, and my brain was bleeding. Not only did I have the physical injuries, but I also lost my husband. We were 19 days away from our one year anniversary. We were hit by a drunk driver, so I was determined to turn my situation around. I teamed up with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, several other organizations, and local high schools. I knew God had left me here for a reason, and I wanted to make certain I accomplished His will. I then met my now husband, Kevin, who was (and still is) extremely supportive. He stood behind me and went to all of my speaking engagements. After awhile, I felt it was time to leave the tragedy behind, and Kevin and I moved on with our lives. I decided I could make a difference in this world through my career. Oh, and let me tell you, I was bound and determined that all my efforts each day made a difference. I knew I would not completely set the world on fire by myself, but I knew I was satisfied knowing I made whatever difference Terri Wright could make. I have always tried to be successful in my professional endeavors, so a lot of time was devoted to my career.
