Suzanne Subbarao (Vice President: Programs)

Hi! My name is Suzanne Subbarao, and my family has lived in Bothell for four years. 

I grew up in Indiana, and met my husband at Purdue University. We have two sons. My older son is in 6th grade at Canyon Park Middle School. This is my younger son's first year at Canyon Creek. He is in second grade.

I love being outdoors, gardening, crafting, and reading. As a family, we love spending time together by camping, playing games, and traveling. 

I believe that a school community is very important to our children's well being and I'm looking forward to helping out!

Nicole Trimble (Vice President: Communications)

Hello! 2022-23 will be my 9th year as a Canyon Creek parent (and PTA member). My son will be a 4th grader and my daughter will be in 8th grade next door at Skyview. I very much enjoy volunteering at Canyon Creek and getting to know the teachers, staff and classmates of my kids.

I have served Canyon Creek PTA, mostly in communications, since fall of 2016. I have been Website Editor, Newsletter Editor, VP-Communications (2018-19 & 2019-20), Glow Dance Chair, Summer Fun Playdate Chair, and I definitely enjoy helping where I am needed. I love the community that PTA helps build at Canyon Creek and hope that we can reach more families and develop an even stronger community!

Prior to becoming a stay-at-home mom, I worked in Project Management in online retail. I have lived in the Seattle area most of my life and in Bothell since 2010. 

I am excited for next year and truly hope we can have more in-person events! 

Jake Tadema (Secretary)

My name is Jake Tadema and my family has lived in Bothell for 4 years. My son Jaxson will be a 4th grader at Canyon Creek this coming fall, and my daughters Emily and Allie will be in 7th and 8th grade at Skyview. When we were looking to move from Lynnwood our main goals were to find great schools and even more importantly an amazing community, and so far we have been so blessed to be a part of Canyon Creek and Skyview!

My wife Jen and I have been together for more than 22 years, and she will be serving as the 2022-2023 Skyview PTA Secretary. I work in IT at Expedia Group, where I have been employed and mostly working from home for the last 6 years.

In addition to coaching t-ball, soccer, flag football, and wrestling, I am also an active WatchDOG so I have already met many of the students at Canyon Creek. I have previously served as a PTA Treasurer (Lake Stickney), and for the 2022-2023 school year I am serving as Canyon Creek PTA Secretary and Skyview Middle School PTA President. I am also involved with my church, where I am a Youth Group and Small Group leader.

I love being involved and helping as much as I can with my kids, as I believe it's really important for youth to have a positive male role model active in their lives. I am really hoping to encourage other dad's and male caregivers to get involved with the school and PTA this year.

In my free time I enjoy traveling with my family, playing golf with friends, and spending time outdoors.

I am excited to join this board and help out as much as I can, and I look forward to meeting everyone!

Tricia Black (Treasurer)

My name is Tricia Black, and I am new to Canyon Creek. We moved to Bothell last summer, and my daughter is starting Kindergarten in the fall of 2022. My husband and I also have three rambunctious golden retrievers, who will be joining us on rotation to the walks to school for pick up and drop off.

I am originally from North Carolina but have also lived in Georgia and California before relocating to Washington in 2010. We lived Kirkland for several years prior to making Bothell our home. I have worked in the Accounting and Finance fields for over 12 years, as well as served as Treasurer of our HOA board in Kirkland. I am excited to bring that experience to assist my Canyon Creek community as Treasurer for the 2022-2023 school year.

My hobbies are mostly arts and crafts, reading and baking. For a while I entertained the idea of opening a bakery, and I have also freelanced with advanced copy book reviews and editing. I am a huge lover of Disney and sing-alongs are a daily occurrence in our house. I am always looking for suggestions for new restaurants to try and will gladly give recommendations to others if they are curious. I enjoy being plugged into my community and encourage others to do the same.
