About
Teri Morin is a graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Upon graduation from F.I.T., Teri worked in various parts of Europe in international marketing. Later, she worked with Simon Property Group in the Retail Development division. In 2008, Teri helped start a non profit for children's environmental health and created Carousel of Hope. Carousel Of Hope was created to help give St.Jude Children's Research Hospital children with life threatening medical conditions a night of Hope and Joy in a clean environment. For the past few years, Teri devoted her life to making sure her daughter became a cancer survivor with the miracles and medical treatments of St.Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Today, her daughter is cancer free. Teri has been a guest of CNN’s Larry King Live with her daughter and Marlo Thomas to help support St.Jude and serve as a voice for the support needed for finding cures of childhood cancers. She is also an advocate for rainforest and believes that protecting our rainforest are essential to the future of medicine and human health. Current research by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has identified more than 3,000 plants that are active against cancer cells and 70% of these species are located in the rainforests. Teri has worked with various organizations helping bring these issues to the public and creating an awareness for the need to help protect the rainforest. The rainforest directly benefitted her daughter and the story was recently featured on The Prince of Wales Rainforest Project. The story is also available on the Prince’s schools site in a pdf format so children around the world can be inspired by her story while learning about the rainforest. In April of this year, my daughter, mother and I helped support the Global Conservation Act and flew to Washington, DC to meet on Capital Hill with Senators and Congressmen. My mother and daughter are both cancer survivors and benefitted from medicines that were derived from plants. And, in June our entire family was on CNN'S Dr. Sanjay Gupta special segment Toxic Childhood. As a family, we feel it's important sometimes to help share issues that have impacted our family and are important for others to know in order to help bring awareness.

** My most important roll is being a mother and am devoted to my family. In my free time, I like to travel, create projects and have been in the vacation rental for many years. Recently, I created www.BeachRental.TV.
