Many things can get in the way of achieving one's dreams, but Maria's passion and determination to become successful have always been major factors in reaching milestones in her life.

Each ceremony is unique, and it is a fantastic feeling to experience firsthand how people can express their love for each.

But perhaps the most unique trade of hers is her decade long career as a professional Stand-Up Comedian which started while living in NYC.
Through a few twists and turns, her journey brought her back to NEPA where she eventually diversified her public speaking and messaging abilities into a Self-Development Coaching business. Although, she occasionally still performs comedy, merging her lifelong interests in writing and speaking as well as, practices in natural health and wellness was a necessary evolution in her own self development.
Teri’s unconventional life choices has enriched her understanding and compassion for the steps others feel compelled towards on their journey. Her transformative speaking and coaching come from a deep exploration of self. The innate sense of humor is the filter in which her messages are delivered. However cloaked, the message is always one of encouragement, non-judgement and love, with a little side of funny.
There is no greater transformative energy on earth than LOVE. It is with great honor that Teri welcomes each jubilant opportunity to Officiate and unite couples in the unparalleled Ceremonies by Lori, as well as, to become a part of her dynamic team.
