Terrilee has a heart for improving community health. She has worked in Iowa Community Health Centers since receiving her Master of Nursing degree from Clarkson College in 2014. She has experience with telemetry, labor/delivery, and providing care to veteran populations through the VA.

Terrilee finds endocrine and metabolic disorders especially fascinating. She enjoys helping patients with PCOS, obesity, diabetes, and age-related hormone symptoms. She is one of the few providers in the state of Iowa with certification in Advanced Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. BHRT is a medical treatment method, which is used to treat people with dropping or uneven hormone levels. It is generally used to help treat conditions like cancer, osteoporosis, perimenopause/menopause, fibromyalgia, thyroid issues, and adrenal disorders among others.

Terrilee also has certification from Cornell University in Plant-Based Nutrition and is passionate about using healthy nutrition to promote wellness and weight-loss to help her patients live their best lives. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, Terrilee provides a full range of primary care services for patients of all ages at our Mason City location. Terrilee is married to her husband, Peter, with whom she shares two grown children, Loralei and Owen. When Terrilee isn’t caring for her patients, she enjoys working with her church youth group, hiking, scrapbooking, and experimenting with vegan cooking!
