Terri Broussard Williams believes leaders turn moments into movements. Throughout her accomplished career as a broadcast journalist, lobbyist and Vice President of Government Relations for the American Heart Association, Terri has turned public and community service into a professional art form that has positively impacted thousands of lives. For nearly fifteen years, Terri would make her career home at American Heart Association, realizing her dream of creating significant, community-shifting outcomes in her home state, and later to surrounding states. Terri counts some of the most significant pieces of legislature passed as some of her accomplishments, including The Louisiana Smoke-Free Air Act pass, one of the biggest defining moments in her career at the age of 29. Today, in addition to her responsibilities at AHA, Terri is focused on paying it forward – encouraging and building up others who want to make their own movements.
