Terri opened Express Weight Loss and Wellness Clinic in 2014 with her sister Diane. It was their dream to create a place that motivated people to get healthy. A one-stop clinic that utilizes medical advancements such as lab testing, injections, and prescription medication as well as holistic alternatives. Understanding the need for permanent lifestyle changes, her team educates clients on best practices through nutritional guidance and healthy alternatives that are realistically achievable for parents on budgets, career-driven clients with hectic schedules, and for those ready to make health their number one priority. Terri holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from MSU, working in Detroit’s auto industry for over a decade before deciding to change her career path to more closely match her passion for helping people. She studied weight loss, wellness and lab testing while training in Georgia, then brought the expertise of over 70 weight loss/wellness affiliates to one location, offering the only truly customized weight loss programs in Michigan.
Volunteering on mission trips and for local charity organizations is another one of Terri’s passions. She often enrolls the clinic (staff and clients) to join her in renovating homes for survivors of trafficking, feeding our homeless community, and mentoring troubled youths. Keep an eye out for these opportunities on our social media pages!
