After losing her job suddenly in 2016 following a retrenchment, TerryAnne admitted to locking herself up and crying her eyeballs out with no idea how she was going to move forward.
“I was sure there was no way I could be retrenched. I went straight to my room, locked it and cried. Unajua ile crying ya sauti ya ushago?
“Over 100 of us were fired but everyone’s attention was focused on me,” revealed Chebet.
But as fate would have it, the Keyara Organics CEO picked herself up and forged on, a move that marked the beginning of her career success.
Not long after, the once business anchor landed a job as the as the CEO of Fanaka TV, the first ever 24 hour Business Television Channel in Kenya.
She worked alongside Jimmy Gathu, the head of TV and operations at Fanaka TV until her next appointment as the General Manager at Metropol TV.
“I have formally left Fanaka TV in very able hands and I'm super proud to join the incredibly talented team @metropoltvke in delivering cutting edge Business Journalism,” wrote Terryanne.
According to the Metropol TV website, the organization is a 24hour business news channel offering viewer’s unrivalled business content with an insightful eye.
Before she landed the General Manager’s position, the mother of two was announced as the brand ambassador of Molfix Diapers.
Terryanne couldn’t hide her joy at getting the opportunity.
“I'm so excited to be appointed the @molfixkenya brand ambassador! Just gratitude” she wrote.
