I am a life-long bookworm and word nerd, with the corresponding peace-keeper/diplomatic sensibilities you might expect from being a middle child raised by hard-working parents with high expectations. I wrangle punctuation into submission as a copy editor, project the voice and brand of entrepreneurs and business owners as a blogger, and create and execute social media strategy. I am a strong collaborator, seek advantage from understanding and am a trusted counsel and mentor for colleagues.
Learner — I strive to continuously improve and learn from every encounter, interaction and experience.
Context — I ask questions to seek an advantage from understanding the past to inform and build success for the future.
Developer/Arranger — I recognize and cultivate the potential in others which helps me pull together the resources and talent necessary for optimal outcomes.
I pursued my journalism degree with minors in political science and history at the University of Iowa, far enough away from home to allow me to spread my wings, but close enough to the tight-knit community I was raised in so that my parents could visit or rescue me from car trouble when necessary.
After graduation, I accepted the invite of a friend I have known since preschool to go with her wherever she was placed after training for her job. Lucky for us, the destination was Denver!
At the height of the Great Recession, I started Teriva Solutions to provide content marketing and digital marketing solutions to you all.
"I loved working alongside Teri every day at Webolutions. Teri is an excellent writer and project manager for initiatives, tasks and client work of all shapes and sizes. She brings years of marketing experience to each challenge, and looks at it through many lenses—writer, marketer, editor, business owner, social strategist—to produce the best result. But the best part is Teri's good-natured approach to true collaboration, and being able to laugh and enjoy the process of creating something new."
"Above all, Teri is a superb communicator who seems to always have just the right words to propel those around her into action. "
"I was looking to bring a talented, detail-oriented writer onto my team as a subcontractor, I immediately thought of her. I love having Teri on my team because she's completely self-sufficient and driven. She produces consistently excellent work and all of our clients are thrilled to work with Teri."
"She has strong attention to detail, and helped organize the content in a way that motivated my readers to take action."
"Teri has been an incredible mentor to me, shaping my understanding of the publishing and editing businesses, motivating my creative efforts and encouraging me to never settle for mediocrity."
"As the demands grew for my online business, I needed help organizing and editing my blogs. Teri Vannoy helped me focus my big ideas into consumable content for my audience."
"Teri is the best copy editor I know, with a keen attention to detail, but also the ability to pull back and give you the big picture view for consistency and clarity. Highly recommend her!"
"Teri is an extremely capable manager of creative services, in addition to being an excellent editor herself. In the three years I worked with her I was very impressed by her ability to manage such a large and diverse group and to keep the company's broader business goals in mind as well. I found her to be very fair, respected by the creative team she managed and with a strong ability to judge resources and collaborate on requirements for a wide range of projects. I would welcome the opportunity to work with her again."
"I've never known anyone to work so tirelessly to provide her employees with the support, information and understanding they need to succeed; to ensure processes and procedures are laid out effectively and clearly; and to always seek the highest possible quality in her own work."
