Heather works at RBC as a Manager of Initiatives & Implementation, with a focus on Diversity & Inclusion. Her previous roles include resource & capacity management, training & development, branch leadership, and operations.
Heather spent three years as co-chair of RBC’s LGBTQ/2S Employee Resource Group in B.C., supporting the inclusion and engagement of LGBTQ/2S employees across the province. Through this work, Heather has increased her involvement with LGBTQ/2S related organizations, which is where she was first introduced to QMUNITY.
Heather was born and raised in Squamish, BC, and moved to Vancouver in 2003. She spent some time studying criminology before realizing that it was more of an interest than a career. She has since returned to school to complete her Project Management certification and looks forward to continuing to advance her education. Heather currently resides in New Westminster with her wife; in their free time, the two of them can be found enjoying local trails with their dog.
