Delegate Terri Hill represents District 12A, which includes portions of Howard and Baltimore County, in the Maryland House of Delegates. Terri serves on the Health and Government Operations Committee. You can read her recap from the last legislative session here.
Informed by her experience, education and deep roots in District 12, Terri speaks powerfully and personally on behalf of its residents, adding depth and breadth to the important conversations that must take place to keep our State moving forward.
Terri moved with her family to the “new town” of Columbia in 1969. A product of Howard County’s public schools, she earned a degree in bioelectric engineering from Harvard University in 1981 and a medical degree from New York’s Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1985. Terri completed a residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, and a fellowship in craniofacial surgery at the University of Miami School of Medicine. Soon after she became board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Terri returned to central Maryland in 1991 to establish her solo medical practice, developing affiliations with most Baltimore area hospitals. She will soon celebrate 23 years of providing high quality medical care to patients in her greater Baltimore-Washington area based practice.
Terri’s volunteer service includes serving as a director of the regional American Red Cross board and volunteering as a surgeon for Operation Smile missions to Venezuela, China and Baltimore.
Terri believes that leadership and STEM training are critical and so her office is a learning lab for high school and college interns considering careers in science or business, and she has facilitated leadership programs for middle school girls.
In recognition of her leadership and service, Terri is the recipient of various awards, including the 2012 Mother Mary Lange Leadership Award from the Archdiocese of Baltimore, Towson University’s Distinguished Black Marylander Award and the 2003 Outstanding Professional Achievement Spirit Award from the Columbia, Maryland chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Terri believes that although our community is comprised of people from different backgrounds and interests, we are united in wanting the things that speak to our quality of life. Our challenges are often complex and our solutions depend on thoughtful and informed debate.
Terri says; “I know our community’s history. I share its vision for the future. I am honored to serve as its representative.”
For Our Future, Our Maryland,
Our District 12!
