Born in Dayton, Ohio, Teri Clark was bitten by the acting bug after performing in her first play in Middle School. She continued taking theatre classes and acting in plays and musicals at Troy High School in Michigan, and then attended Roosevelt University in Chicago on the Maria Tallchief theatre scholarship where she graduated with honors with a BA. In Chicago, Teri was seen on stage at Bailiwick, Piven Theatre Workshop & the Court theaters, among others, and signed by Cunningham, Escott, Dipene for representation. She toured a year with the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival's Educational Outreach program, as well as appeared on stages in the Midwest including the Human Race Theatre in Dayton, Ohio as C in Edward Albee's Three Tall Women, before she eventually landed at Jeff Daniels Purple Rose Theatre where she appeared in several plays, including originating roles in the new plays Leaving Iowa and Hope For Corky. In Detroit, Teri also appeared with Laverne & Shirley's Cindy Williams and Eddie Mekka in Kong's Night Out at Meadowbrook Theatre. It was in Detroit that Teri began being heavily sought after for voice-over roles, performing in a multitude of radio and television commercials and corporate industrial narratives, including ads for Blue Cross Blue Shield, which she was the Announcer for 5 years, On-Star and the Detroit Tigers. It was through volunteer narrating for Assistive Media, a website for the blind, she garnered her first audio book work, which soon lead to recording on site for Brilliance Audio, the largest audio book publisher in North America. Teri continued honing her skills training with top talent/teacher Pat Fraley in LA, and saw a need for training in Detroit, so she created TCVO, where she brought in Pat, as well as top talent/teacher's Pamela Lewis and Sherri Berger for voice-over training events, as well as began coaching beginning students. Teri had been cast in Indie Films Mooz-lum, Nevermore and Ocean of Pearls, and seen in smaller, non-speaking roles on screen, notably with screen legend Ernest Borgnine in Frozen Stupid, before Edward Zwick directed her in her first studio feature Love and Other Drugs, where she played an ER nurse who assisted Jake Gylenhaal with his little "problem." She frequently gets recognized though from her work with David Oyelowo in the Tom Cruise film Jack Reacher, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, and as Mrs. Babbit, the lady who believes the Russians are invading, in the J. J. Abrams directed film Super 8. Teri is very proud to have worked with Viola Davis in the Daniel Barnz directed film Won't Back Down, and also to have worked and spent time on set with screen icon Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Elliot Lester directed film Aftermath. In 2019, Teri was seen on stage at Dayton Ohio's Victoria Theatre Association's A Christmas Story as Mother, on the WGN Network's Gone, starring Chris Noth and Danny Pino, and in I See You as Mrs. Braun, starring Helen Hunt.
