Terri Tate, RN, MS, is a speaker, storyteller, and author whose life and voice were threatened by two bouts of oral cancer from which she had a 2% chance of survival. But her sense of humor was never in danger. Terri offers customized keynotes, workshops, and webinars. Audiences across the country are moved to laughter, tears, and standing ovations by her powerful performances. Terri teaches storytelling classes that emphasize healing, comfort in speaking and building the humor muscle. Her individual coaching practice emphasizes self-love, gratitude and acceptance. Terri’s memoir, A Crooked Smile, with a foreword by Anne Lamott, was published by Sounds True 1/1/2016.
