Terri Stephens is unflinching in her determination to be there for others.

Of her 26 years living in Airdrie she has been on the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, Boys and Girls Club Board, and Airdrie District Hospice Society Board.

Stephens has also volunteered at Our Lady Queen of Peace and the Canada Day and Santa Claus Parades.

“I love meeting people and making a difference, when possible, with my time,” Stephens says.

“When I see someone becoming a better person, or succeeding in their business, it just motivates me to work that much harder.”

For the past 19 years, Stephens has worked as a real estate agent in the community, while also pursuing her interest in the spiritual realm as Ukrainian Baba Madame Marushka, giving signature and card readings.

Nominator and friend Melina Lindsay has seen the years of dedication Stephens has put towards the community and serving as a helping hand to strangers.

“Terri is an amazing woman that goes out of her way for all her clients, friends, family, co-workers and even for strangers,” says Lindsay. “She always empowers people and goes above and beyond for others.”
