Terry has been involved with anthropology and various “people skills” since the early 1970s, including sales, customer service, health service training, and research on the quality of healthcare experience for New Zealanders, particularly for Maori. Her passion for health and culture led her to receive nursing training, work in hospital reverse isolation, labour and delivery in both the United States and New Zealand, and eventually clinical then academic healthcare education.
At AUT she has taught anatomy and physiology as well as a variety of social sciences, including anthropology and sociology for occupational therapists and military paramedics, health issues in New Zealand/Aotearoa, cultural safety and the Treaty of Waitangi, psychology and lifespan and therapeutic communication for healthcare professionals, as well as clinical and academic skills for nurses and healthcare assistants.
Terry has been employed at AUT in various roles since 1999. She is currently a Lecturer in the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies, where she is Paper Leader for Human Structure and Function for the Certificate in Healthcare Support, and Paper Leader for the Psychology and Lifespan Development paper that includes teaching practical therapeutic communication skills to healthcare students.
