  1. Terry has an amazing spirit about her. She fills every room she walks in with love. Terry volunteers her time in just about every volunteer avenue we offer at PMMC. She spends a great amount of time researching our outreach programs. She constantly looks for ways to make them more hands on and fun. Outside of the outreach program, she also dedicates her time as an education teacher, and a wonderful one at that! When Terry is not volunteering in our education department, you will find her in our animal care department or out in our visitor yard. Terry spends her Monday mornings providing care to our marine mammal patients; cleaning hospital units, weighing out fish, helping with feedings, assisting with rescues, among lots of other tasks. In addition, Terry always adds flare to PMMC by volunteering to decorate our visitor yard for every season and holiday to come. We are very lucky to have Terry on our volunteer team.


  2. Terry has so much love and dedication to PMMC, contributing in so many ways. Her personal touches to add decor associated with the season makes everyone feel at home. Her continual commitment to the animals never waivers. She is all in with our educational mission teaching children about human impact on our oceans and the animals that live there. She brings that message forward through leading the Outreach Team and creating new ways to engage the public. Thank you Terry for all that you do! You are so very appreciated beyond words!
