 Teri Ackerson is a Stroke Coordinator and stroke survivor.  She became a Registered Nurse in 2003 after spending 10 years in the telecommunication industry.

Teri began her nursing career as a critical care nurse and is currently the Stroke Program Manager at Liberty Hospital.  In a twist of fate, Teri suffered a stroke on May 27, 2013.  Her life was saved by the same education that she had taught to others as a Stroke Coordinator. 

Teri was determined not to let her stoke interrupt her life.  Twenty six days after being discharged from the hospital, she ran a marathon, and returned to work.   As a Stroke Program Manager and survivor, Teri provides stroke education to RNs, physicians, EMS personnel, and the community she serves. 

She develops programs to raise awareness of stroke, the 4th leading cause of death in our country, and the number one cause of preventable long term disability.  She works with stroke survivors, sharing her story of inspiration, courage and triumph.  JFK stated “One person can make a difference and everyone should try”.  Teri has made that her life motto and it is the model for her nursing practice.
