In Office: First Elected 2020
This is Heather's first term as a councillor. While she grew up in Pembroke, Yarmouth County, Heather has been a resident of the Town of Yarmouth for over 40 years. Heather is a retired Registered Nurse who graduated from Yarmouth School of Nursing and later from St F.X. University with a BScN. Most of her career was spent in Mental Health and Addiction Services, with the last 10 years as CEO and Nurse Manager of Harbourside Lodge.
With a passion for giving back to the community and an aspiration to see it grow, Heather has sat on several Town committees. She presently serves on the Community in Blooms Committee, Doug Melanson Park, Milton Improvement Society, and the Harbourfront Museum Board.
I have two daughters and four granddaughters and believe it is vital to provide positive female role models to inspire young women to enter politics. I look forward to working towards the enrichment of our community and believe that together we can Build a Better Tomorrow for all.
