As a graduate student she conducted the field work for her MSc degree at BMSC (UCalgary). She earned her PhD from SFU in evolutionary biology, during which time she was a teaching assistant and instructor for summer and fall university courses, the University Programs Coordinator for several years, developed earlier versions of the BMSC website, and raised a family. Heather’s 30-years of experience at BMSC as a researcher associate (formerly with Dr. Brad Anholt, UVIC), instructor, and communications specialist makes her uniquely qualified for her diverse responsibilities.
