Terri Ottenwess serves as the supervisor of our Medicaid Team. In this role she works to qualify families for government assistance and get them into nursing homes. Terri has been with the Law Offices of David L. Carrier since shortly after the company’s inception.
Terri’s journey to becoming a Medicaid paralegal was circuitous. After deciding that becoming a pilot wasn’t for her, Terri studied film-making with a minor in photography and art history at Grand Valley State University. She then decided that the best way for her to gain first-hand experience was to move to Los Angeles, where she worked in graphic design and photography.
After moving back to Michigan, Terri went to Davenport University to finish her degree in paralegal studies. Before coming to work for David she worked for a short time at Cardelli, Lanfear, Buikema in insurance defense.
Terri enjoys working at The Law Offices of David L. Carrier because she loves solving problems and as the director of our Medicaid team she gets to solve problems for our clients daily.
When Terri is not filling out a Medicaid application, she loves to take road trips with her son, Simon. They enjoy road tripping to Chicago for pie, or tracking down the pandas of North America in their various zoos of residence.
