Terri has been an Occupational Therapist for over 20 years, practising for 14 years as a specialist Occupational Therapist in the field of Stroke Rehabilitation. In her final 7 years in practice, she was involved in setting up services locally to improve the quality of rehabilitation for people following Stroke.
She has spent the majority of her clinical practice supporting and developing others, from students to colleagues to support staff. As a team leader and manager within the NHS, she realised this was an area in which she felt enthusiastic and energised, and was positively received by her colleagues.
She joined the Occupational Therapy lecturing team full time in 2015, having taught on the programme part time during the previous academic year and finding that she loved it. Her role as Practice Education Lead allows her to stay connected with clinical practice and also develop her knowledge across professions.
In her spare time, she endeavours to remain healthy in both a physical and mental sense by practicing Haidong Gumdo – a Korean Sword martial art.
