Meet Our Team

  • Remembering Peter Galvin, Our Founder

    We are Tenleytown. We dedicate our hearts and hands to Peter Galvin, our founder, leader, and friend. Peter worked to beautify the neighborhoods where he grew up. He assembled a dedicated team and built a thriving business, starting with a truck, a lawn mower, integrity, kindness, and hard work. We honor Peter’s legacy through our commitment to our clients.

    Rest in peace, Peter.

  • Lisa Yost Galvin

    Owner

    Lisa is honored to be at the helm of Peter’s business and hopes to tap into the luck of her Irish blood as she fills his big footsteps! She loves rock climbing, skiing, practicing medicine, and Peter. Probably not in that order.

When Santos is not working, you’ll find him playing fútbol or enjoying the beautiful outdoors.

    Virginia V,

    Virginia is one of those amazing humans who makes sense in the universe with numbers. When she is not keeping our books, you can find her rock climbing, fishing or concocting a salve from local foliage.
