Terri Burditt works in management with the Texas Property and Casualty Insurance Guaranty Association helping with pending insurance claims when an insurance carrier becomes insolvent. She loves traveling, interior design and visiting museums. She devotes her free time to volunteering with the Carver Museum, Wil-Serve, Greater Mount Zion Baptist Church and CASA of Travis County.
Terri had wanted to be a CASA volunteer for a while, but waited until one of her children headed off to college to get started. Five years later she has advocated for the best interest of 12 children.
“The environment I grew up in was loving and nurturing. I believe that it does take a village to raise a child, and with my parents, family and circle of friends I had a very good village to grow up in,” shares Terri. In her work with CASA she wants to help replicate this environment of encouragement and support so that kids can reach their full potential.
Terri sees her role with CASA as “a creative opportunity to offer new ideas and new beginnings for the kids.” She feels that CASA encourages her “in the sense that it's not about you but what you can ultimately give back to others and to your community.
