Reason for selection of recipient(s): 

Teri’s extraordinary leadership at UPS has significantly expanded the legal department’s pro bono program in partnership with organizations such as the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Georgia Justice Project and Street Law, Inc. The innovative public-private partnerships have transformed the delivery, quality and capacity of many legal aid services. Through this work, UPS has greatly enhanced the provision of legal services to underserved groups, including juveniles and seniors, and contributed to programs that supplement legal support through community engagement and other types of assistance to clients. An active board member of the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Teri’s leadership has resulted in the provision of UPS attorneys who work full-time with the legal aid provider for a number of months. 

Teri has graciously brought her leadership, vision, and expertise to NLADA by becoming a member of the Blue Ribbon Commission on Public-Private Action (PPA), which aims to expand effective public-private partnerships to advance the cause of equal justice. As a result of that effort, the first PPA pilot program, a statewide collaborative to assist veterans in North Carolina, is now ripe for replication across the country. 

Teri joined the UPS Corporate Legal Department in 1995, and was appointed General Counsel and Corporate Secretary in 2006. She lives in Atlanta with her husband and daughters, where they are active with many church-related, civic, and community organizations.
