Terin Barbas Cremer: National Women's History Month Spotlight

Now, more than ever, we need to come together in support of each other. So, in honor of National Women's History Month, and to shine a light on female Trail Blazers to support during this time, we’re highlighting woman entrepreneurs who are tirelessly working to support their communities and the businesses around them. Today’s positive inspiration is none other than Tampa attorney Terin Barbas Cremer.  

After enjoying a prestigious start to her legal career as an associate attorney at Allen, Norton & Blue, P.A., staff attorney at the Florida Agency for Persons with Disabilities, and Chief Human Resources Officer and Associate General Counsel at Bankers Financial Corporation, Terin founded her own employment law firm, Barbas Cremer, PLLC. As the head of her firm, Terin assists clients with crisis management, business solutions and talent management, making it part of her personal and professional mission to help local businesses overcome the consequences of unexpected and catastrophic events. Thus, when the COVID-19 crisis recently started having a drastic negative impact on Tampa Bay businesses, Terin was ready to help her clients and community face the pandemic.

Since the arrival of Coronavirus, Terin has diligently worked around the clock to stay abreast of state and federal legislative changes and state and local resources. As a part of her communications strategy to inform the public of these decisions, this Thursday, March 26th, beginning at 11:00 AM, Terin is a panelist on the State of Business with COVID-19 webinar sponsored by the Tampa Bay Chamber. The program will address operational and employment issues faced by small businesses when dealing with COVID-19. To assist with these issues, during the webinar, Terin will share business strategies, facts and resources of which employers should be aware to fully address human resources and employment needs. If you have questions or want to learn more about employer obligations to employees in response to COVID-19, register for the webinar here.

As shown by these selfless examples, Terin has established her footprint in the Tampa Bay legal community and well beyond, including through her service as an appointed member of the City of Tampa Civil Service Board, and many well-deserved accolades, such as the FSU College of Business Recent Alumni of the Year Award (2016); Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Top Corporate Counsel in a Private Company (2015); Tampa Bay HR Person of the Year (2015), and more.

For all of these reasons and so many more, we couldn’t let Women’s History Month pass without inspiring the Spread Your Sunshine community by sharing Terin’s story. Keep shining brightly, Terin, you are a such a source of strength and guidance to so many during this time!
