Hi! My name is Felicia & I am a U3 McGill student majoring in Psychology & Sociology. My buddy October is an awesome and simply extraordinary person & we always have unique adventures and great laughs. It is my first semester as VP Communication as well as my second year as a Beyond Me mentor. If you are looking for a way to have a great time and help others develop social, physical or human skills, Beyond Me is truly the place to go. The members are excellent at mentoring the children & are really nice people to hang out with. Look up at the website to see for yourself! See you then!

Jaimi Plater

Hi everyone! My name is Jaimi Plater and I am your VP External. I am a U1 Political Science major with a double minor in Philosophy and Canadian Studies. I’m from Thunder Bay, Ontario and am very interested in Canadian politics and exploring the outdoors. My role as VP External consists of outreach with other university and community groups so that we can provide our buddies and mentors with cool events and great learning opportunities. I am very excited to be a part of the Beyond Me executive team!


Charlotte Goldberger

VP Communications


Hi! My name is Charlotte, and I’m a U1 student in the Faculty of Arts majoring in Philosophy and Sociology with a minor in Psychology. I joined the Beyond Me organization as a mentor in 2019 and have served as VP Outreach since Winter 2020. Being involved as a mentor with Beyond Me means not only helping a child feel welcomed, it also means creating a long-lasting bond with them through games and endless fun. As VP Outreach, I help Beyond Me raise awareness about the special-needs community and collaborate with schools to pass our mandate along to potential mentees.

Hello! My name is Paige and I am this year’s VP finance trainee for Beyond Me. Despite things looking a little different this semester, I am looking forward to making this a fantastic experience for all of our mentors and mentees. And now, a little bit about me. I am a second-year physiology student at McGill, I grew up in Okotoks, Alberta, and my favorite activities are skiing, watching movies, and playing with my puppy!
