Teri Worthington Coombs


Born and raised in Manitoba, Teri has called Toronto home since 1999.  A passion for the arts and social change drew her to fundraising and not-for-profit administration and she has been honoured to develop and grow her skills in this area at The National Ballet of Canada, Opera Atelier,  Soulpepper Theatre Company and currently at UNICEF Canada.   Instilled with a life-long commitment to volunteerism, Teri has been proud to share her time with ArtsScene, the Toronto Summer Music Festival, the Central Toronto Skating Club and other organizations.

An avid support of arts and culture and committed to philanthropy, she supports numerous organizations including Community Food Centres Canada, the Toronto Public Library Foundation, the Art Gallery of Ontario and Samara.   In the early hours of the morning, Teri can often be found running in High Park and has set a goal of qualifying for the Boston marathon in 2019, but in the meantime trains and races locally and internationally.
