Dr. Shelly Dev 1994

Havergal’s Old Girls Association is pleased to recognize Dr. Shelly Dev with the 2009 Young Alumna Award, for her ongoing commitment to making a difference.

Shelly’s commitment to leadership and education has flourished from her time at Havergal beginning with her role as School Captain and valedictorian of her class. Her dedication for excellence in education continued as she pursued and graduated with honours from the MD program at the University of Toronto. Shelly is currently a lecturer with the faculty of medicine at the University of Toronto and teaches students and residents as a clinical associate. She is also a critical care specialist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

Shelly has seen her personal commitment to education bring her back to Havergal where in 2000 she participated as a mentor for the Girlshine Program as well as her work as a tutor for the Saturday Morning Program for disadvantaged youth.

Through her experiences Shelly has had great opportunities to couple her love for fine arts as well as science together. Shelly has a considerable interest in film that has offered her great opportunities stemming from Havergal throughout medical school and resident training. Using her vast experience Shelly has developed a new way of teaching medical trainees to safely perform procedures through video instruction.

It has been through Shelly’s pursuit of personal and professional development that has contributed to her significant success. We congratulate you, Shelly, on your achievements and continued success in your personal and professional endeavours.
