Heather is a long time Victoria resident currently working with the artsREACH Board on the Human Resources Committee. She graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor’s of Education degree and began her full time teaching career in Prince George. Love of Victoria soon brought her and her family back to Victoria where she later completed a Master’s of Education degree.
She took a break from teaching for two years and lived in Kuala Lumpur with her family where they enjoyed many adventures. Work continued with the Greater Victoria School District as a classroom teacher and school administrator for over 30 years. Through her work in the schools she saw firsthand the benefits of the artsREACH programmes and saw the enthusiasm children had for all the sessions.
Now retired from the school district, Heather enjoys working with the artsREACH Board, playing bridge, reading, hiking, travelling and walking with friends. As well, spending time with her three grandchildren brings much enjoyment.
