Terry’s interest in a pharmacy career 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 2021, Terry was recognised a Senior Fellow with Advance HE. In addition to teaching, Terry continues to work regularly in community pharmacy to maintain her practice.
