Creating Together Board of Directors 2023-2024
Season has lived in the Roncesvalles-Parkdale neighbourhood since 2019 and began her relationship with Creating Together as a parent when her oldest son was 8-months-old. She joined the Board with hopes of helping Creating Together reach its fullest potential, knowing what a special place it can be to families. When she isn’t trying to catch up with her kids, Season is an occupational therapist and psychotherapist, a lover of stories, and can usually be found somewhere outside on a long walk.
Nithyapriya, Mom of 2 kids who has been associated with creating together for almost 8 years now. It has been a great experience for me and kids. Kids have always enjoyed the space. I have joined the board hoping to be more involved with Creating together activities and the community. Presently, a stay at home Mom who loves cooking and going out for a nature walk. I have a worked in Information Technology for over 3 years.
Sam is a developmental psychologist and researcher who works with children and families. She joined Creating Together to connect with the Parkdale community and is looking forward to helping the centre reach more families. Outside of work, Sam enjoys reading, practicing yoga and Pilates, and making art.
Visali has been coming to Creating Together with her two children for years now. With a background in teaching, Visali first came to Creating Together as a newcomer and new mom. Creating Together has been the place where she met other mothers like herself and had the opportunity to chat with them. This is what motivated her to join the Board as a volunteer. Her family loves the space, circle time, and the celebrations at Creating Together, and her children love spending time with their friends there. Visali is currently the self-proclaimed Queen of her house: taking care of her super girls, passionate about cooking, learning new things, creating art, reading books, and spending time with her family.
