8 Terri Goldman HeadshotTerri Goldman
Client Support Rep

Terri has had many jobs over the years, full time & part time, but she found a home within C3Workplace. She’s been part of the team for over seven years in various capacities – from filing to administrative to bookkeeping work. During all phases of her employment here, Donna & the C3 staff have always made me feel part of this wonderful family.

Terri began as an executive secretary at the regional sales office of an insurance company. Through continued education and leadership, she worked her way up the ranks to become the office supervisor, where she was responsible for an administrative staff of 30, including all HR functions, preparing & operating with million dollar budgets, creating & maintain brochures, forms & documents, etc.

After deciding to simplify her life & get out of the “corporate” atmosphere, Terri moved on to become the administrative assistant for a small local company. Her main duties include all admin work, handling A/P and A/R, creating flyers & forms, assisting with insurance related matters, etc. While continuing there, she also works at a bowling center assisting with HR functions, doing data processing work, organizing & facilitating the kids’ leagues and being the main liaison between the center and the many leagues that bowl there. (And also the liaison for any C3 staff and community members that need access to the place!).
