Terry Squyres joined GWWO in 1997 and became a member of the management team in 1998, quickly distinguishing herself through the management of many of GWWO’s large, complex new construction projects. Terry oversaw multiple projects during a 9-year relationship with the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, resulting in new and renovated facilities that transformed the visitor experience at George Washington’s historic Mount Vernon estate, including two new award-winning visitor and museum buildings. She has also built relationships with numerous K-12 and higher education organizations, supervising projects that include the new LEED Gold Certified Towson University West Village Commons building and the new Dundalk & Sollers Point High School, a comprehensive and technical high school complex. Additionally, Terry has served as Principal in Charge for multiple interpretive projects including the new Port Canaveral Welcome Center and the Cade Museum for Creativity + Invention. 

As Principal, Terry brings her design skills and attention to detail to the firm's design implementation efforts, overseeing a rigorous review process focused on translating design intent into coordinated, thorough documents that result in the construction of elegantly detailed and well-executed buildings. Her efforts are integral to maintaining the standards for design quality and coordination at the heart of GWWO’s practice. 

Terry currently serves as the president of the Board of Trustees for the Contemporary in Baltimore and on the Site Base Committee for Baltimore County Public Schools.  She has served on the Baltimore Chapter of the AIA’s Board of Directors and as chair of both the lecture series and the communications committees. She has also served on the Board of the National Council on Qualifications for Lighting Professionals, and has been a juror for the International Interior Design Association’s Lighting Design Awards.  Terry holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Notre Dame.
