The highlight of my time working at Nature United has been being able to see our projects firsthand and understand the size of these incredible conservation areas.


Heather started at Nature United in 2015. In her current role, she provides operations expertise to support fundraising, tracks key fundraising metrics, and plans fundraising events and trips for the organization.

Before this, Heather worked in community at-home health care, conference planning and for a community soccer club. She has a bachelor of arts in law and human rights from Carleton University, and a post-graduate certificate in events management from Conestoga College.

She enjoys hiking and exploring the green spaces in Toronto, as well as reading and thrifting on the weekends.
