Meet the Toronto Team
Kama brings endless energy and enthusiasm to her role as Director in Toronto. Within the clinic, she can be found doing assessments, working with students and developing our remedial programs. Her work can take her out of the clinic and into schools where she facilitates transitions for students who have completed The Reading Foundation’s programs.
Kama is passionate in all areas of her work and motivates everyone with whom she collaborates. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics and Psychology from the University of Calgary and has been with The Reading Foundation since 1991.
Outside of work, Kama enjoys culinary adventures and is an expert restaurant recommender. She is also an architecture/interior design enthusiast and is well-versed in Lego thanks to her lovely son.
As Assistant Director at the Toronto clinic, Darian puts her efficiency and organization to good use, planning and personalizing each of her students’ remediation programs. Darian’s analytical nature and attention to detail enable her to effectively adapt our programs to meet the individual needs of every student. She joined The Reading Foundation as a clinician in 2012 while completing her Bachelor of Arts in Speech Sciences at the University of British Columbia. When she isn’t at work, Darian is passionate about playing soccer and spending time outdoors.
Toronto’s Administrative Leader, Megan is as compassionate as she is energetic. As a liaison between our clients, Team Leaders, and staff members, Megan assists in organizing and personalizing each student’s experience with us. In her work as a clinician, she forms strong and lasting bonds with her students. Hours with Megan are joyful, as well as productive as she is determined to help students get the most out of their time at The Reading Foundation. Megan has worked for The Reading Foundation since 2014 and, in her free time, can be found enthusiastically singing whatever song she has stuck in her head and making memories with people she loves.
Yasmin was a 2014 addition to our team of clinicians. She now brings the energy and creativity that enabled her to thrive as a clinician to the role of Team Leader. In addition to monitoring the progress and individualizing the programs of her students, Yasmin, our resident social media expert, has been a great asset in compiling statistics for The Reading Foundation’s projects. She has a Bachelor of Arts in English and Psychology with Honours from the University of Calgary. In her spare time, Yasmin’s favourite hobby is painting.
Barbara joined the Reading Foundation eager to help students learn. Her passion for acquiring new information translates into shared enthusiam for learning throughout every hour she spends with a student. Now, as a Team Leader, Barbara carefully tailors every students' program to help them thrive and increase their self confidence. Her quiet demeanor and warm conversational skills provide an inviting atmosphere when working with students, and meeting with parents. Barbara has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology and Psychology. When she isn't at the Reading Foundation, Barbara is enjoying time with her family.
Ketty joined The Reading Foundation team in 2016 and brought with her the enthusiasm and energy that makes her our local athlete. Having completed an Iron Man and an Ultramarathon, Ketty harnesses the same focus and determination from her favourite activity, running, and applies it to her teaching hours. In her clinical hours, Ketty challenges students to dig deeper and discover the “why”. As a Team Leader, she tailors her students’ programs to tackle their academic realms of need with a no-nonsense attitude. Outside of work, you can spot Ketty taking breaks between running at the city’s best café’s and restaurants. On any given day, you can catch her devouring a bowl of noodles—but blink, and she’ll be off on her next marathon.
Sophary brings an abundance of patience and fun to every clinical hour. She can easily understand and adapt to the personal needs of others, ensuring that every person receives the most out of their time at the clinic.
Sophary is passionate about animals (especially cats). Say hi to Nala, Cosmic, and Charlie. When she’s not at work, you can find Sophary dining at the latest (and coolest) vegetarian restaurants. A huge fan of the Raptors, and a great addition to any team.
