The Team


Simona Ramkisson

Simona is the program manager of community outreach for CareerMash, connecting educators to role models from the tech world wanting to share their experiences and career paths with young people. Having traveled and worked in numerous countries as a youth facilitator with a Toronto-based social enterprise for over three years, she is happy to be rooted in the city for a while. Little known fact, she is petrified of pigeons and has been french kissed by a giraffe while working in Nairobi, Kenya.


Gina van Dalen

As project manager for the Business Technology Management (BTM) program, Gina leads the implementation of BTM by guiding universities towards the adoption and development of their program. She also coordinates BTM related activities such as the BTM job matching service WhoPlusYou. When she isn't shuttling between her son's hockey games, she is throwing clay on her pottery wheel, pencil draws and practices Anusara yoga.
