Diana Davis, President

I’m excited to be entering my third and final year at LVPPP. This has been such an amazing community to be a part of since my family and I moved to North Vancouver from the U.K. three years ago. Outside of preschool, I’m a full time mom to two very active boys (aged almost 4 and 6) who can already outride me on the North Shore mountain bike trails. In my previous life, I lived in Paris and London working in various marketing, communication and journalism roles.

Dina Lanzi, VP 4’s

Hello! I’m Dina and my son Luca will be in the 4s class. My older daughter also came to the preschool so this is our fourth (and final!) year at LVPPP. After previously being on the Fundraising committee, and then VP 3s, this time around I’ll be the VP of the 4s class. We love living here in Lynn Valley and being part of this amazing preschool community!

Taryn Richardson, VP 3’s

Hi everyone, my name is Taryn. I’m this year’s VP 3’s. I have three kids. My son, Sebastian, is going into the 3’s class. My older two kids also attended LVPPP so we’re heading into our fourth year in a row here. We moved to Lynn Valley from Kitsilano four years ago and are loving life on the North Shore. I’m looking forward to getting to know all the new families and catching up with everyone who is returning this September!

Mathew Bond, Treasurer

My name is Mathew and I’m excited to be part of the LVPPP family for the second year. My oldest daughter Wilhelmina is stoked to be in the 4’s class this year and my youngest daughter Coral will be starting in the 3’s class next year. My wife Michelle and I live in Lynnmour, close to Lynn Creek. I love to be in the outdoors, mountain biking, trail building, or on cross-continent road trips with the family in our camper van. I’ve worked as a transportation engineer, but am currently on hiatus from that, working as a day-at-home-dad and moonlighting as a City Councillor.

Laura Collings, Secretary

Hello! I’m excited to be joining the executive this year for the first time as Secretary. My son Ryan will be returning to preschool in the 4’s class. His little brother Bran will still have another year to wait before he can join the fun. Our family is a relatively recent addition to Lynn Valley – but we feel right at home in this welcoming community. I enjoy biking with the kids, hitting the trails and keeping local coffee shops in business. I’m looking forward to the connections and routine of preschool – it’s a unique year but nothing we can’t handle together.

Kirsten Sadeghi-Yekta, Enrollment Chair

Hi, I am Kirsten Sadeghi-Yekta and I am the Enrollment Chair this upcoming school year. I am the mom of two loving boys, my eldest Oliver who is attending the 4’s class this year. We have moved from Kitsilano 2 years ago and we love living on the North Shore. We like going to the beach in the late afternoons with our paddle board and exploring new trials as a family. I look forward seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones!

Corinna West, Personnel Chair

Hi, my name is Corinna and I will be this years Personnel Chair. I am here to answer your questions and help you navigate through our Parent Participation Preschool. This will be my second year at the preschool. My twin boys Jacob and Gunnar will be entering the 4’s class. We also have a two year old daughter and a big stinky Bernese Mountain Dog. You might see us walking the trails around Lynn Valley or dipping our toes in Hastings Creek.

Marcy Graham, PR & Marketing Chair

Hi! I’m Marcy, mom to Oliver (6) & Jasper (4). I’m an ultrasound technologist. I enjoy running & being outside in the mountains. This is my second time at LVPPP. I will be our PR & Marketing Chair. Looking forward to an great year at the preschool.
