Teri Laeder

Teri comes to Maker Works with enthusiasm for process improvement.  She’s only mildly familiar with operating the tools in the shop at this time but this will quickly change.  The excitement for process has her desirous to read through and familiarize with all the different standards in the shop.

A graduate from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology, Teri has always had a mindset for figuring out how things work but most recently has applied it to how things are physically done and why they are done that way.  She has worked for the past year with Zingerman’s as a Lean Apprentice and most recently received the title of Continuous Improvement Coach. She’s been helping the different Zingerman’s businesses improve how they are producing food, making decisions, documenting processes, and improving their everyday tasks.

She resides in Ann Arbor with her fluffy family; Emma the cat and Yogi the dog.  In her spare time she enjoys volleyball, mountain bike riding, and walking Yogi in the many beautiful parks around Ann Arbor.
