Terra Van Osdell

BA Business Administration

A little bit about me...

My name is Terra and I am married. I have three children: Two boys and a little girl who are my pride and joy. We also have two dogs: a chocolate lab named Molly and a yellow lab named Kinsler, both of which are treated just like one of the kids! I grew up in Arlington, Texas which in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Even though my husband and I were pretty happy we both decided that if we wanted to provide a better future for our children then we would need to go back to school. So, we moved to Morristown, Tennessee, somewhat close to the Knoxville area, about six years ago to go back to school with the help of my husband’s parents.

I am currently living in Humble, Texas where I have recently finished all of the requirements for me to be a certified teacher in social studies. However, I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Ashford University that I received in November of 2014. I am also a member of the Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society through Ashford. I hope to start a Master’s program in the next few years once I have decided which route I want to take.

I have chosen to be a part of this program because having a mentor to help new students get through those first few classes is extremely helpful. Knowing that there is someone available to answer their questions and guide them through their online classes can give them the confidence that they need.
