Terry Varney Freerks helped paved the way for hundreds of swimmers over the years. But she sees sport as a vehicle for education and other opportunities in life. She began swimming at the age of four and became a nationally-ranked swimmer by the age of ten. Her career continued into college where she had to stop competitive swimming and take another route when moving home and attending the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She began coaching for her former swim club, the CSP Tideriders, and quickly moved up the ranks eventually becoming Executive Director. Her career in the water coincided with her education outside of it. She got her masters and Ph.D. in counseling. We follow her career and how she has helped hundreds reach their goals.
