She is skilled in historical research, significance assessment reports, the recording of oral history and the research and writing of legacy/lifestories. Terri has a Bachelor of Arts (Australian and International History); a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Australian History (Thesis title: “The Forgotten Battlefront: Australia’s War on the ‘Spanish’ Influenza, 1918-19 – a Queensland Perspective”) and Certification from Significance International, Canberra.
Over her career Terri has undertaken many Significance Assessments of museum collections from single object assessments to whole museum collections.
