Terry was born in San Diego, California and moved to Rehoboth Beach at a young age. She graduated from Cape Henlopen High School in 1978 and earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware in 1983. She helped run the family resort cottages, the Cove, in Dewey Beach, and worked for many years at the Camel’s Hump in Rehoboth Beach.
