Aashima Pillai, Student Care Supervisor

I moved to Toronto with my husband and 2 children in 2015 from a state belovedly called ‘God’s own country’ Kerala in India. I am a Punjabi by birth and a Keralite by marriage. After moving to Canada, I went to University of Toronto to pursue a second Masters in Adult Education and Community Development, specialising in Workplace Learning and Social Change.  My background is in Finance and Business and I have worked with major financial institutions as an administrator, HR personnel and trainer for 2 decades, but my passion is education.


I am a mother to a teenage son and a queenage (9-year-old) daughter. As a family we like staying fit, enjoying running and working out. I have run a full marathon and a few half marathons. Quiet contradictory, but I am also a big foodie. I love all kinds of foods and do not hesitate in trying anything and everything. Music is my soul and I cannot imagine my life without it. I am always humming something and listening to music. I am also a motorcycle rider and enjoy solo rides whenever I get a chance to slip away from the city traffic. I speak English, Hindi, Punjabi and Malayalam.
