Terry Ann is a physician dually boarded in Ophthalmology and Family Medicine, with additional training in wilderness and emergency response medicine. As a family physician, after completing a second residency later in life, she has focused on creating innovative family practices that focus on patient empowerment for the underinsured, as well as insured. She helped develop the first preventive care registry in Maine and actively mentors younger community based primary care physicians in high tech, low barrier, patient centric practices.
She graduated in the third class of women at Dartmouth with a degree in Earth Sciences. She worked as an exploration geologist for Exxon Minerals, and as an energy consultant in Cambridge and Houston, prior to completing premedical requirements at Columbia University. Terry Ann graduated from the Mayo Clinic Medical School and completed post graduate training in Retina surgery, General Ophthalmology and Family Practice, in Atlanta, New York and Maine. In addition to her direct primary care practice, she supports immigrant health needs, and conducts US Civil Surgeon exams for immigrants from all over the world who are applying for citizenship.
Recognizing the importance of community and connection in mental and physical wellness, Terry Ann has developed instruments including a parish health ministry, a support network for isolated family caregivers, and a regional physician support organization. Together with her husband Frank, she supports Life Sciences at Dartmouth and provides annual scholarships for first generation students. She joined other alumni to travel with Dartmouth Professor Ross Virginia to the Arctic in 2016. She considers her most important accomplishment, taking time from her career to raise socially and environmentally responsible children who are invested in giving back to their communities, and the world.
