Heather is an RVT, practicing in the Halifax area since 2014. She is originally from the Southern coast of Labrador, where she then moved to Truro to study at the Agricultural College.
She has dabbled in a wide array of Veterinary medicine throughout her career, ranging from General Practice, to integrative medicine, Veterinary Technology education and clinical development to most currently, humane society shelter operations and medical management.
It is through all of these very unique experiences that she realized that in addition to her love of the profession her real passion was for developing clear communications and expectations, ensuring everyone had the tools they needed to do their job well, whether it was clients, students, peers or employees. It is with this in mind that she became interested in being involved at an association level within veterinary medicine.
In addition to her current role as President, she also sits on the board of directors with RVTTC, a national advocacy group for RVT’s, who continue to build resources and connections with other groups to develop a stronger voice for our profession and connect associations across the country.
Outside of professional activities, Much of her time is spent at the barn with her horse, riding and taking lessons to prepare for a horse show, or having quality time with her other critters and partner.
