Heather joins the Nexus community from an established international school in Hong Kong where she was Vice Principal. Having studied for her PhD where she enjoyed teaching undergraduates, she worked in a variety of schools in the UK, building her teaching and leadership portfolio. This led to an opportunity of working for the local government, and enabled her to influence curriculum and lead groups of schools through curriculum reforms and present to national audiences. Heather has a passion for inquiry and learning in all forms and ensures she continues to learn as a CIS evaluator. Being part of team visits to schools in Vietnam, Japan and Australia has furthered her love of international education. She values being part of the leadership team that shapes the journey for learners to ensure they have the skills and knowledge to be successful in life beyond school. Outside of school, Heather enjoys baking, gardening and sharing meals with friends.
