Terry’s interest in a career in pharmacy began when she undertook work experience at her local community pharmacy and this led her to pursue a career as a pharmacist. She graduated from the School of Pharmacy at the University of Nottingham in 2005 and went on to complete her pre-registration year with Boots. She worked as a community pharmacist with Boots and completed her Postgraduate Diploma in Community Pharmacy before becoming a Boots Teaching Practitioner at the School of Pharmacy, University of Reading in 2010. Following this role in academia she moved to a full time post as a Senior Teaching Fellow at the School of Pharmacy, University College London, in 2014. In addition to teaching, Terry continues to work regularly in community pharmacy to maintain her practice.
Terry currently teaches undergraduates on a wide range of clinical pharmacy and pharmacy practice topics, from therapeutics through to law and ethics and professionalism and leadership. She has a particular interest in the use of technology to support teaching and learning and is also working towards developing her expertise in teaching topics related to oncology. She has experience teaching across a range of years on the Master of Pharmacy course through to delivering pre-registration training and providing continuing professional development for qualified pharmacists. Pre-registration training was a passion for her when she worked as a Teacher Practitioner and she continues to deliver and develop pre-registration training and support for University College London graduates as well as external providers.
