Butterfly Brunch

2014 Teri Jendusa Nicolai imageMark your calendars for the 2015 Butterfly Brunch on Saturday, March 7. The keynote speaker will be Teri Jendusa-Nicolai, a domestic violence survivor.

Teri Jendusa-Nicolai will share her story of survival, hope, and faith. A victim of domestic abuse, Jendusa-Nicolai was nearly murdered by her ex-husband eleven years ago. After being viciously beaten with a baseball bat, bound with duct tape, stuffed into a garbage can with snow, and moved to a frigid storage locker in northern Illinois, the Racine native spent the next 21 hours praying, thinking of her two young daughters, and trying to stay awake. She believes that it was God's plan for her to survive – and to help others thrive.

Today, Jendusa-Nicolai has remarried, her daughters are in high school, and she has a seven year-old son. She travels around the country speaking on the issue of domestic violence and acting as an advocate for enhanced legislation on behalf of abuse victims. Additionally, she works closely with the Racine County Sheriff's department to improve resources, protections, and notifications for victims of domestic violence.
