Terry has been with Highland Health and Rehabilitation since October 2011. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Social Sciences from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) in 1995. Previously, Terry was with Avamere Olympic Rehabilitation of Sequim. She also ran the Messenger House on Bainbridge Island, and Montesano Health and Rehabilitation in Montesano, WA. She enjoys running Nursing Homes because every day makes a positive difference for someone. Working at Highland is a particular pleasure because it is small enough that she is able to know every staff member and many of their family members, as well as every resident and their loved ones – even their pets in many cases. There is always something different to do – from crunching numbers for the financials to planting or weeding in our gardens. She particularly enjoys times she gets to help feed residents or participate in some activity with the residents. In her spare time Terry enjoys spending time with family and friends or crafting/sewing or reading or outdoor walks.
Peggy Pratt, RN has been with Highland for 7 years and has been the Director of Nursing Services since the Summer 2016. She attained her Nursing degree at Clark College in Vancouver, WA – graduating in 1990. She has worked in long term care since 1988, starting as a Certified Nursing Assistant. Peggy’s greatest pleasure is bringing joy and comfort to her staff and residents. In her spare time, she exercises and spends time with her family and pets.
Michelle joined the Highland Health and Rehab team in August 2016. She has worked with Empres Healthcare since May 2010, previously working as Speech-Language Pathologist at our sister facility, North Cascades. Michelle earned her Masters degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Western Washington University in 2009. She also holds her Bachelor of Secondary Education degree from the University of Alberta. As rehab manager, Michelle strives to maximize the quality and outcomes of all rehab services provided at Highland Health and Rehab. She has worked hard to build a team of well-trained, compassionate therapists to meet the needs and appropriately challenge each patient receiving therapy at Highland. Specific areas of expertise and interest include the assessment and treatment of swallowing disorders, cognitive disorders and language impairments. Michelle enjoys coming to work every day because the home-like environment at Highland allows each employee and resident to feel like part of an extended family, and as a result, the quality and warmth of care provided is of obvious benefit to each resident. Michelle is also a busy mother of two young daughters and enjoys exploring the outdoors and staying active.
