Born in St. John's, Newfoundland, Heather was a long time member of St. Thomas's Church, the most easterly Anglican Church in Canada. Heather served as a Sunday school teacher for many years, and as liaison with the church's Senior Complex. She also volunteered for the Children's Hospital in St. John's, along with serving on a number of different boards.
Heather has lived in Nanaimo since 1995, when she moved across the country from sea to shining sea! She has been a member of St. Paul's for almost twenty years and began her work as Verger shortly after she moved to Nanaimo. Heather loves every minute of her time at St. Paul's, both as a parishioner and as an employee.
