About the Author

heather bio

With a Bachelor of Nursing degree from the University of New Brunswick, Heather worked for many years in Maternity and Obstetrics and Community Health Nursing. After receiving a Master’s degree in Adult Education from the University of British Columbia, she became a faculty member at the University of Victoria School of Nursing combining her love of nursing with a growing passion for teaching. It was there, in the classroom, that the idea for this book was born.

Heather has worked in New Brunswick, Québec and British Columbia, and her travels from coast to coast have given her an increasing love for Canada.  In this unique book, she aspires to assist all readers who want to improve their English skills while learning about this wonderful country of Canada.

Heather lives in Tsawwassen, BC, with her husband, Gary, and close to their daughter Karen’s family with three grandchildren. Their son Ken’s family, with three grandchildren in Texas, gets regular face-to-face time and lots of Canadian books to learn about the country that Heather so dearly loves!
