Invest in Your Community!
Leanne Koehn is a local community builder and event organizer. Learn how investing in your community creates strong connections and partnerships, inspires others, and spreads the reach of your message or business farther than you thought possible.
Born and raised in Maple Ridge, Leanne studied Theatre at UBC and lived in Japan, Vancouver, and Burnaby before returning with her husband to raise her kids in the natural beauty of her hometown.
In her role as Community Engagement for Ridge Meadows Recycling Society, Leanne leads a team to organize the annual “Celebrate Earth Day” event: mrearthday.ca and is the inaugural chair of the City of Maple Ridge’s Environmental Advisory Council. In 2018, Leanne organized Maple Ridge’s first Repair Cafe: mrrepaircafe.ca. Leanne also sits on the Life After School Transition Committee (LAST), a group of service providers who celebrate community inclusion and help students with diverse abilities transition from high school to the next stage of their life: lastcommittee.org.
Leanne is a community organizer in her historic neighborhood of Hammond and is currently working with her husband on an intense renovation and restoration of the craftsman-style house her grandfather built in 1923. They are combining heritage elements with green energy retrofits. She enjoys spearheading neighborhood projects, sharing her love of theatre and the outdoors with her kids, and sits on the City of Maple Ridge’s Public Art Steering Committee.
Join Women’s AM for our March meeting as we learn about The 5 R’s including Green Office tips, Repair Cafes: what they are and their benefits, and 2019 Earth Day: Healthy Community, Healthy Self.
