Terace Garnier was born in Bluefield, West Virginia, Terace Garnier (pronounced Ter- Ace, like the card, and Garn- YAY!) traveled with her father, a U.S. Marine, across the country. She never settles in one place too long as her endeavors have led to a life of travel and extraordinary experiences. This remarkable woman boasts a background as diverse as her talents, along with her passions for storytelling, art, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy. After temporarily pursuing an undergrad in Art History, Terace decided to explore her curiosity for storytelling by enlisting in the U.S. Air Force as an AFN reporter, anchor, and radio show host. During her time in Japan, she fearlessly covered a wide range of stories impacting military communities throughout Asia and Europe.

As a civilian, Terace earned her Master's Degree in Broadcast and Digital Journalism from Syracuse University before embarking on more globe-trotting adventures as one of the youngest network journalists for Fox News Channel. She specialized in uncovering the truth while presenting hidden facts in balanced and unbiased televised reports as a multimedia reporter. Some of her work includes ground coverage of the historic fires in Australia; the Afghanistan drawdown, live from the Pentagon; the Trump impeachment trial, live from Capitol Hill; and the Black Wall Street Massacre Centennial. Talk about a journalist on a mission!

This U.S. Air Force veteran’s journey took an unexpected turn when she found herself living out of her car while tirelessly pursuing a career as a network news correspondent in 2019. Most people might have thrown in the towel, but not Terace! She faced this colossal challenge head-on, showing the world what resilience and determination really mean – refusing to be defined by her circumstances. This determination led her to purchase her first home and become Newsy’s (Scripps News) first Pentagon correspondent.

Just when you thought her plate was full, she took on anchoring the esteemed Roland Martin Show, became a mentor to high school students, sharing her vast broadcast knowledge and inspiring the next generation of journalists, and pursued a life of pageantry and modeling. This led to raising money for pageant scholarships, mentoring sexual assault survivors, a building a vast new network of empowered women.

Terace's artistic flair and community service ambitions are even more awe-inspiring than her coming-to-age story. In 2022, she independently curated a virtual portrait gallery and auction with CBS anchor, Vladimir Duthiers. She raised thousands for homeless women veterans and their children which provided over 144 days of housing – talk about a heart of gold! You can still find some of her original works of art from the portrait gallery online, or spread throughout her home, along with her gorgeous, self-made epoxy resin serving trays and live edge wood. Her work not only helps raise awareness about homelessness among veterans but promotes the importance of work-life balance and setting boundaries to maintain one’s mental health.
