Heather is one of the directors of the RRVA. Below is a short Biography of Heather
“I am a longstanding resident of Randpark Ridge. Married for over 20 yrs and a mother of 4, I enjoy community involvement. I want to help ensure that my family and friends, who also live in the area, enjoy the fruits of this great suburb, along with other community members whom I’ve not had the pleasure of befriending yet. I like seeing families walking, enjoying the clean parks and cycling our streets.
I want to hear kids laughing and playing in our parks, what better sound is there? I believe that a good community is primarily driven by contributions by the community, and I joined the RRVA to make a meaningful contribution in a way that I could.
My expertise lies in financial management, HR, business administration and business strategy with South African companies, as well as international companies. Hence my involvement in leading those particular areas within the RRVA. I have a wealth of experience spanning over various industries, and over a number of departments within an organisation. In providing a more holistic understanding of the impact actions have, I am then able to provide improved cohesion within an organization.
I enjoy my time on the RRVA and there have been many new and exciting changes which have been spear-headed by our dynamic team, which is wonderful to see. After all, if nothing changes, then nothing changes. Change is inevitable and the only choice we have is to drive the change we want, or to be pushed into changes we do not want.
As a biased resident who believes I live on the best looking little street in our area, I want all our streets to be as beautiful.”
