Amy Herkenhoff - Terres 
Amy Herkenhoff-Terres '03 - Professional Photographer
Amy Herkenhoff-Terres, Ridgewater Class of ’03, is a professional photographer with her own business.
"I attended Ridgewater College, because I had heard that the photo program was the very best, and I believe it still is." - Amy 
 At Ridgewater: 2001-2003 – AAS degree in Photography
Amy attended Ridgewater College knowing that her end goal was to own her own photography studio. With that end goal in mind, Amy worked hard taking first place in the Ridgewater 2002 annual print competition and attending the Northern Light Photo Convention in the spring of 2003. Amy was also a team member of the Women's Basketball team that participated in the NJCAA tournament in New York.    
“I loved my experience at Ridgewater, small class sizes and one on one attention was exactly what I needed for personal success, and that is exactly what they provided. Plus I was always a sports nut and loved the fact that I could also stay competitive playing basketball while attending." - Amy
