Ormilla Vengersammy

Director, Academic Programs

Over the course of Ormilla’s career, as a facilitator of learning and as an instructional designer, she had the privilege of launching and leading several successful training departments for various organizations. Ormilla has used over 20 years of experience in leadership and management to coach and train individuals using adult-learning theories, and the development of instructor-led and online training programs. Ormilla has a master’s degree in Instructional Design from the University of Central Florida and a bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Baruch College, New York City. She’s passionate about the academic instructional field and consistently seeks out opportunities to enhance training and development techniques. Ormilla believes that every individual is destined to be a leader. Being a leader is not about the title, but the individual who is willing to lead by sharing their knowledge, skills and ability with others. “Dream big, never stop learning. Whether it be for personal or professional growth, learning never stops,” says Ormilla. “Coil isn’t just a place for learning, it is a place to connect. A safe-haven designed to inspire people to share their experiences, knowledge, and skills.” Per her upbringing and richly deep-rooted background in education and training, Ormilla delivers a necessary and diverse foundation The Coil Learning Center has been searching for.

Maria Tolzmann

Academic Programs Assistant

A former CoiL intern and recent UCF graduate, Maria is excited to further her role within The CoiL Learning Center. She is assisting in the development of new classes and programs, and she is happy to help ETP employees excel in their continuous improvement. Maria joined ETP as an intern during her final semester at the UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management in the Entertainment Management B.S. Though her primary focus is in performing arts and nonprofit arts organizations, she was drawn to the dynamic work environment at ETP after a site visit for her entertainment technology class. Despite having already completed her internship requirements, she wanted to learn more about the entertainment technology field. She is proud of what she has accomplished so far, and is eager to see where this new role will take her. When not at CoiL, she is working on a Masters of Nonprofit Management certificate program at UCF, and she can be found attending performing arts shows and events.
