Terri Couser

Terri Couser is a Board-Certified Credit Consultant and Certified Credit Score Consultant. A mother of three, entrepreneur, mentor, trainer, and professional who holds two degrees from Villanova University.

She worked for Trans Union for over three years where she literally updated thousands of credit profiles from individuals across the nation, and received training in the Fair Credit Reporting Act, credit repair, and bankruptcy laws. During her career at one of the three national credit bureaus, she conducted credit file reviews, processed disputes, corrected countless credit reports, investigated items challenged by customers, and participated in a mentoring program where she monitored associates who were not meeting standards and assisted with creating a plan to help them have improved performance outcomes.

Her credit bureau experience led her to explore real estate. She attended Polley Associates Real Estate School and worked as a consultant to assist her clients with buying, and selling homes in addition to tenant screenings, lease negotiations, property management, and zoning. After being elected a member of Yeadon Borough’s Zoning Board, she was appointed the Vice Chair of Zoning for two years until she moved out of that township.

Ms. Couser’s corporate background includes working for a global healthcare company for almost a decade. In this capacity, she managed over one hundred physicians in Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties as a Senior Analyst.

Giving back and mentoring are part of what motivates her. Ms. Couser has participated in many events focusing on our youth including partnering with Philadelphia Education Fund, Year Up, and Universal Transformational Leadership Institute for panel discussions, guest speaking, mentoring, and career days with students.

Terri Couser is now using all her knowledge, skills, and experience to educate consumers about their credit reports, investing, leverage, home ownership, strategic goal planning, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, overcoming obstacles, business credit, and understanding credit scores with the launch of her own company, C.A.R.E. (Consulting, Awareness, Readiness, and Education).
