North End/West End
Teri Lynn Groome is a citizen of the world – and deeply committed to her community. An Air Force “brat,” as a child, she and her family moved often. She later traveled the world as a flight attendant, and she and her husband travel to experience different cultures and find common ground.
An entrepreneur and teacher, Teri has long been dedicated to expanding opportunities and supporting underserved communities, as well as fostering the arts. For eight years she volunteered with Dress for Success Boston, and she now serves on the Board of Advisors at the Celebrity Series of Boston and is a member of its Racial Equity Committee, Patron Engagement Committee and Co-chair of the 2023 SHINE! Gala.
When she and her husband moved to Boston’s West End, she discovered the ABCD North End/West End Neighborhood Service Center. Now a member of its Neighborhood Advisory Board, she is a tireless advocate who leads food security initiatives, toy drives, and gives of her time and energy at events, serving, cleaning, and doing whatever will make life better.
Boston’s West End, almost lost to urban renewal in the 1950s, has made a comeback, and Teri is intent on making connections. “When they hear ‘West End,’ people think Mass General and TD Garden, but we are a neighborhood!”
