She was assistant director on the Broadway production of Spring Awakening, and later worked on its national tour.

She was a recipient of a NEA/TCG Career Development Program for Directors and a Drama League Fellowship.

Ms. Terry was most proud of her work as director on several shows in NYC including The Germ Project with New Georges and Lesbian Pulp-O-Rama! She was also the author of several plays and musicals for children, as well as the adult satires Ronbenet and Over a Barrel.

She is survived by her wife, playwright Gretchen M. Michelfeld, and three-year-old son, Beckett, as well as her parents, her sisters and their families in Texas.
