About Teri

Teri Martens is a Midwestern girl gifted with a strong mechanical ability. In the class where she learned to weld, her instructor said, “Teri’s first weld was better than most of the other students’ last weld.” Little did the instructor know at the time that Martens would go on to make the ability to attach one piece of metal to another her creative focus, surpassing all expectations and even surprising herself. Nor did the instructor know that ten years later he would invite her to teach alongside him so that students could see that this melding of gas, oxygen and steel could be used for something besides building bridges.
