Hello, I'm Jaime Kerr!
Jaime is in her final year in the Master of Education in School and Applied Child Psychology program at the University of Calgary. She is thrilled to join the Koru team this fall to complete her 8-month internship. Jaime will be providing psychoeducational assessments for children and adolescents under close supervision of Sally Li and Dr. Caroline Buzanko.
Jaime has many years of experience supporting children with unique learning needs and implementing early interventions. Prior to this internship Jaime has completed three 200-hour clinical practicums at clinics in Calgary and the university, where she provided comprehensive psychoeducation assessments and designed and implemented evidence-based interventions. She has experience working with children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, learning disabilities in reading, writing, and math, and social emotional concerns such as anxiety.
Jaime is also a mom to a five and three-year old who have allowed her to gain a practical perspective on the parenting journey, with both the intense joy and overwhelming challenges it brings. Jaime is passionate about supporting children and families and values respect, empathy, and collaboration throughout the assessment process. She believes that all children can do well when they have the right tools and supports for success. She loves how the assessment process identifies a child’s unique strengths and reveals how to best support them to optimize their growth and reach their highest potential. She is honoured to have the opportunity to work with children and families at Koru.
On her spare time Jaime loves spending time outside in the mountains with her family, doing crafts and playing along with whatever scenarios her little ones imagine.
