Kari Weigel

Owner of Sylvan of North Dakota

Bachelor of Accountancy, University of North Dakota. Kari started with Sylvan when it opened in July 1995. She rejoined Sylvan in June 2004. Kari spends much of her time introducing families to Sylvan, answering their questions, and matching students up with a program built just for them! In her free time, she enjoys going to coffee, playing scrabble, reading, playing with her young children, and spending time with her extended family.


Emma Gamache

Center Director


Emma is the center director in Fargo, ND. She has been with Sylvan since 2019 and studied at Valley City State University. When Emma isn’t at Sylvan, you’ll find her riding her motorcycle, reading with her cat on the patio, or watching documentaries.




Maren joined Sylvan in 2006. Before working at Sylvan, Maren earned her BS in education from the University of North Dakota and taught in the public school system for five years. With a passion for math and higher-level education, Maren has overseen the ACT and college prep programs in addition to other programs Sylvan offers. When asked why she chose Sylvan over the classroom, her answer was simple, “At Sylvan, we teach kids to love to learn!” Away from Sylvan, you will find Maren playing outdoors somewhere with her family, whether it is in the mountains of Montana, the lakes of Minnesota, or out for a run somewhere in-between.




Ryan joined Sylvan in September 2008 and we are lucky to have him here. He manages the “business” side of Sylvan. In his free time he enjoys golfing, softball, running, spending time with his three kids, and watching football, baseball, or any other sport.
