M. Therese (Terry) Kelly
Founder and Director
New Heights Center LLC
In 1991, M. Therese Kelly opened the New Heights Center, a learning center in Towson that helps people who struggle with reading and writing, especially people with dyslexia.
Her business plan when she opened had one unusual goal that her husband, a business consultant, said he had never seen in a business plan before: She wanted to be put out of business because the public schools were offering the same services she does.
That hasn’t happened yet, however, and Kelly’s learning center continues to thrive.
