Heather loves to travel, she is originally from England and came over to Canada to experience the mountains of BC. Whilst exploring BC she went on an eco whale watching tour which really opened her eyes to the plastic problem in our oceans. Having spent most of her childhood on the coast in Europe she loves the ocean and jumps at any opportunity to get in the water.
After learning just how much we are impacting our oceans she immediately reached out to Plastic Oceans Canada to see how she could raise awareness and contribute to our cause. Whilst studying Law she developed strong analytical and research skills, so exploring topics on plastic pollution and communicating these issues to the public seemed like a great fit for Heather.
