Meet the Vancouver Team
Director of Standards (National)
Devan is the Director of Standards for all three of our locations. She has worked extensively in all aspects of The Reading Foundation including team leading, scheduling, training (both internally and externally), mentoring staff, program development and assessments. She was the Assistant Director for the Calgary clinic for many years. She assisted with opening the Toronto clinic in 2016 and was the Director of the Vancouver clinic for two years. She is an excellent leader and brings her knowledge to the students, parents and staff she works with. Devan has a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics from the University of Calgary and has worked for The Reading Foundation since 1999. When she isn’t working or volunteering, she enjoys traveling, reading, and almost every mountain activity.
After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics from the University of Victoria in 2018, Irina soon joined The Reading Foundation team to pursue her passion in teaching and language. She continues to use her knowledge to help provide each student a meaningful and unique learning experience in all aspects around the clinic. As a Clinician, Office Coordinator, and Team Leader, Irina strives to help students build their skills and confidence to reach their fullest potential. She is dedicated to making their sessions enjoyable and development long-lasting. Outside of working at the clinic, Irina enjoys baking sweet treats and road-tripping around B.C.!
Through her work as a clinician, Andrea discovered a passion for making learning a creative, fun, and enriching process. Now, as a Team Leader, she works hard to keep students engaged while providing guidance and support throughout their programs. She has found that overseeing her students’ progression through the programs has been fulfilling as she gets to see their abilities and confidence grow. Andrea has a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics as well as a minor in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Calgary. In her spare time, you will find her hiking with her dog Maia in the summer or snowboarding in the winter.
