Heather Holroyd

Heather Holroyd was involved in the planning and delivery of the Field School from 2012 until the completion of her PhD in 2016. Her dissertation research, an ethnographic study of the social and economic experiences of immigrant women who participated in an employment and leadership skills settlement program at two Vancouver Neighbourhood Houses, was inspired by her work as a teaching assistant and community liaison for the Field School. Since completing her PhD, Heather has applied her community-based experience and research skills to staff, consulting, and volunteer roles at non-profit organizations and agencies while continuing to teach part-time.
