Founder | #MovementMakerTribe
Terri Broussard Williams believes leaders turn moments into movements. Throughout her accomplished career as a broadcast journalist, press secretary for a US Senate Candidate, philanthropist, lobbyist and non-profit executive, Broussard Williams has turned public and community service into a professional art-form that has positively impacted millions of lives.
For fifteen years, Terri has made the American Heart Association (AHA) her career home. Her journey at this organization realized her dream of creating significant, community-shifting outcomes in her home state, and later to surrounding states. She counts some of the most significant pieces of legislation passed as her most distinguished accomplishments, including The Louisiana Smoke-Free Air Act, a game-changing career milestone she experienced at the flourishing age of 28.
Broussard Williams received her bachelor’s degree from Louisiana State University. Terri is holds a diversity and inclusion certificate from Cornell University and is a graduate of the social impact strategy executive program at the University of Pennsylvania where she currently serves as a teaching fellow. She also serves on several boards including the Annette Strauss Institute for Civic Engagement and The Association of Junior Leagues International among others.
