About

blueroom2

Terri Queck-Matzie lives in Fontanelle, Iowa, where she has turned her Midwest work ethic and nearly 20 years experience in print and radio journalism into a successful freelance career. She specializes in accurate reporting and well-written copy produced on deadline. Her skill with a camera enhances her work, and helps her provide the visual elements needed to complete a story or marketing project.

Terri grew up on the family farm and has spent her life in the midst of crop and livestock production, making her a natural for ag markets. She also possesses a close affinity to the arts, enabling her to look deep inside the people and inspirations of the genre.

But perhaps Terri’s strongest strength is her ability to relate to and work with people from all walks of life – helping both clients and sources effectively communicate their message.
