Heather is TEA's Campaigns Director.
She leads TEA's current and future campaigns to victory by working with a skilled team of campaigners and in coalition with many community, labour and health partners. Her years of experience as a TEA Campaigner on a wide range of issues including air quality, water pollution, toxics, energy and waste has prepared her for the complex urban environmental challenges our city faces.
Heather is always eager to experiment with new approaches to community engagement that can build grassroots support and foster local leadership. From local monitoring projects that turn residents into citizen scientists to civic actions that win environmental policies at Toronto City Hall, there are many exciting ways to build a greener city for all.
Since her early roots exploring the woods of eastern Canada, Heather has been a passionate advocate for the environment. Heather is a University of Toronto alumni with a B.Sc Honours Degree in Environmental Science and an M.Ed in Adult Education and Community Development. Prior to joining TEA, she worked as a researcher in the health and environment fields with positions at Cancer Care Ontario, Health Canada, Waste-Econ, and the UofT Soil Erosion Lab.
