“Terry gets it right without overstating small stuff. She sees a longer scope than many are capable of and sadly too few appreciate. Additionally, she arranges reports so that one does not feel they have been jumped ahead or need to review for clarity.

“Terry brings a solid knowledge of the economic data and Fed history to bear in quickly distilling the essentials for consumption.” — Les Alperstein, President at Washington Analysis
