Terry and Maureen Aldrich have been married for 16 years. They met in 1999 when she walked into his antique shop, and it was love at first sight.
Throughout his years, Terry has held two very different careers. First, he spent 20 years as a psychotherapist on active duty in the Air Force and as a program director for civilian mental health clinics. Second, he spent another 20 years as a business owner focused on the import and export of Western European antiques and furniture in Sarasota, Atlanta, and Italy. Maureen on the other hand began as a ballerina with the New Orleans Opera. She also studied world dances, ranging from SW Native Americans, Haiti, Brazil, Ghana, Hawaii, and 17th century France. In her career she choreographed ballets, became an associate professor of dance therapy at the University of Illinois, a professor in the history of dance at Vanderbilt, and has published three books on the subject.
What made Terry decide to make the move from a career in psychotherapy to running an antique shop? And how did Maureen turn her passion for dance into a career?
