Heather began working as the Director of Healthcare Industry Relations for Health Partners International Canada (HPIC) in March 2020. She obtained her B.A. and LL.B. degrees from the University of Toronto and was called to the Ontario Bar in 2001. She practised as an intellectual property attorney in the pharmaceutical and healthcare spheres for nearly 20 years before deciding it was time for a career change.
Heather holds an LL.M. in International Development and International Trade Regulation from the University of Toronto and a Professional Certificate in Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Management from Ryerson University. Committed to lifelong learning, also recently completed a Graduate Diploma in Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability at the University of St. Michael’s College/Toronto.
As an avid traveller, Heather’s proudest moment came when she visited the country of Chad in May 2023 – her 193rd country of 193 UN countries.
