About Event Producer, Terri Allred
Terri Allred is a professional event planner, belly dancer, and owner of Third Eye Tribal and the Belly Dance Business Academy. She also runs Terri Allred Consulting, a nonprofit and small business coaching and training company.
Her professional background is in nonprofit management in the field of rape crisis and domestic violence. She has served as the Executive Director of rape crisis centers and women’s centers in North Carolina, Ohio and Tennessee. She also served as Executive Director of the Resource Center for Women and Ministry in the South.
She has a Master of Theological Studies from Vanderbilt Divinity School in Feminist Theology. Her primary focus of study was the relationship between sexual and domestic violence (trauma) and the spiritual component of healing. She has lectured across the country on this topic to clergy/faith communities and helping professionals.
Producing the Women and Spirituality Conference allows her to combine her commitment to women’s empowerment and freedom of spiritual expression with her love of hosting parties and events.
She lives in Rochester, MN with her partner Daniel, her two sons Dylan and Jack and her dog Belle. She is originally from North Carolina and loves to relax by the ocean and hunt for sea shells, both of which are hard to do in Minnesota.
