Heather is an Investment Counsellor at UBS Bank (Canada) where she helps people assess and hedge their risks and build wealth management strategies to match their goals.

Prior to becoming an investment specialist, Heather earned a PhD from the University of Waterloo in science and technology and worked as a professor at the National University of Singapore. She has a commercial pilot’s licence and rescue scuba diving certification. More than hobbies, these accomplishments helped Heather become a shortlisted astronaut, but not to be.

Heather has served on Boards since 2005 including being elected municipally as Chair of the Vancouver Park Board. She currently sits on the Boards of Langara College, Sport BC and the YMCA Foundation.

She is an active member of the Institute of Corporate Directors and has completed the Director Education Program for the ICD.D designation.

In her leisure time, Heather rows competitively, is a proud volunteer Big Sister, and wishes she had time to travel more extensively again.
