Terry Deans is a North Carolina Native who spent much of his early years in Baltimore, Maryland where he was involved in an unfortunate accident that would change his life forever. While working as a construction worker, Terry was electrocuted and paralyzed for several months. It was during his hospitalization that Terry found that the direct caregiver was an intricate part for habilitation. Terry’s vision of customer care and empathy returned him to North Carolina where he started his Mental Health Career in Residential Care in the Wake County area. Terry has over 17 years working in behavioral health and while completing his BS in Social Science from the University of Maryland Global Campus, he has managed a Psychiatric Hospital and served as Area Supervisor for six Intermediate Care Facilities. Terry has a passion for serving others and has been recognized by his peers as a vocal advocate for the DD/IDD community. His leadership and experience adds value to our team.
