Human Resources Director Terri Wilcox
Terri was born and raised in Cajun Country in New Iberia, Louisiana, and earned her bachelor’s degree at the University of Southwestern Louisiana, now called the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. After graduation Terri joined the U. S. Air Force where she spent 25 ½ years serving our country in many different capacities.

Upon returning to Montrose, Terri held the position of executive director for All Points Transit from July of 2008 until June of 2013. When she started at APT, the organization served Montrose County with 24 employees and 18 vehicles. She helped APT grow to 39 employees and 30 vehicles and expanded service to encompass over 3,400 square miles, including Montrose and Delta counties and Norwood in San Miguel County.

She had many successes, one of which was assisting the local Disabled American Veterans Chapter. In 2009 they approached All Points Transit to take over scheduling all medical trips for disabled veterans. All Points Transit began scheduling more than 110 trips per month ensuring disabled veterans had transportation to their medical appointments. This collaboration continues today.

In September of 2010, under Terri’s leadership, APT started the Montrose City Bus Flex-Route Service. In that same year, APT was recognized as the “Colorado Medium Transit Agency of the Year” by the Colorado Association of Transit Agencies (CASTA). In 2012 APT received a national transit award for Outstanding Public Service from the Federal Transit Administration.

Terri began her new role as HR Director for the City of Montrose in June 2013 where her team created an employee onboarding and orientation program that enables new employees to hit the ground running and provides a foundation for their stay with the City. She also helped the City to better align performance with expectations by working with the team to change the performance management process.

Terri holds a Master of Public Administration degree in Human Resource Management. She is married to Chris Wilcox, who was raised here in Montrose. Chris works at Colorado Mesa University, Montrose Campus, as a student counselor. They have a child of the furry variety named Pearl and enjoy the multitude of outdoor activities available on the Western Slope including camping, hiking, fishing, boating, biking, skiing, snowmobiling and 4-Wheeling.
