Bio: Terri is a Columbia native who took a brief sojourn to Charleston to complete her undergraduate degree at the College of Charleston. While there, Terri discovered a passion for archival research, and enjoyed doing independent work in the Special Collections of Addlestone Library, the Avery Research Center, and the South Carolina Room in the Charleston Public Library. In 2020 she graduated after writing her capstone paper "A Brief Discourse: The Use of Seditious Libel in Both Protestant and Catholic Propaganda in the Elizabethan Era." which focused on the use of art, literature, and other forms of dissemination used to sway the opinions of the English people for and against Queen Elizabeth through the lens of religious iconography.

At the University of South Carolina, Terri is pursing the combined master's degree program in Public History and Library and Information Science. She is excited for this continued venture into scholarship at a higher caliber.
