Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley

Terry Gallo is a graduate of San Jose State University in Radio/TV.  She owned her own production house in San Jose, Video Estate Productions, for 9 years until she changed careers and became a Field Manager for QSP Fundraising Reader's Digest.  On July 8, 2011, Terry's middle daughter became psychotic overnight and was eventually misdiagnosed as having bipolar. This is when Terry started her campaign to open a children's medical psych hospital with the help of Cindy Chavez and Joe Simitian. This state of the art 90 million dollar hospital was just approved to be built at Valley Medical Center. In 2013 Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford started a clinic after her daughter and asked Terry to join their staff as a parent mentor.  Terry mentored families, used her media skills to spread their story, and helped raise funds for the clinic.  In December of 2016, Terry started working as the Development and Outreach Manager for Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley. This is a nonprofit that does free home repairs and safety modifications for homeowners in need.
