Professional Experience

Teri Wingender is a freelance writer who prefers water to dry land. When she’s not in mermaid mode in the fast lane at her local Y, she switches her fins for her favorite Via Spigas and gets busy writing about…well, everything — health, business, politics, education, science. “Any subject interests me when I’m learning from people who are passionate about what they do,” she says. “I once talked to a man who invented new kinds of plastic. He had a beautiful voice and told me the story of cellophane in hushed, reverential tones. Now I think Tupperware is so romantic." Teri has written for Forbes; Glamour; More; and Penthouse and is former senior editor of Fitlinxx.com, the industry leader in electronic fitness equipment and online fitness training. She is co-author of The Enlightened Stepmother: Revolutionizing the Role, published by HarperCollins in 1999.
